Greeting cards featuring Wake Forest University’s Unity and Hope theme year logo are still on sale at the College Book Store. One hundred percent of the $10 charged for each pack of cards will go to the September 11 Fund that was set up by the United Way and the New York Community Foundation.

So far, card sales have raised $1,500. Senior Melissa McGhie of Miami, Fla., designed the theme year logo. It features a stained glass motif with a candle in the center, and the words “unity” and “hope.” The cards are made of high-quality glossy paper, and measure 5 inches by 7 inches. They are blank inside and come in packs of 10.

The project is the second fund-raiser that is part of the student-organized Year of Unity and Hope. The first fund-raiser, an open call for donations, raised more than $10,000 between Sept. 11 and Oct. 31. Most of that money went to the September 11 Fund. Some donors designated their donation for the American Red Cross.

The College Book Store is open Monday through Thursday from 8:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. It is open Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. The store will also be open from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 12, and from 1 to 6 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 13.
