A check for $5,000 was presented to the Santa Monica-Malibu Education Foundation on Sunday.

The Santa Monica College Faculty Association, the professional union for the faculty members at Santa Monica College, donated $5,000 to the

Santa

Monica-Malibu Education Foundation at its Pier Party on Sunday.

The event is the Foundation’s yearly event

to

raise funds for all schools in the Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School

District, and the Faculty Association presented the check during the

event.

The

Faculty Association regularly participates in community activities but

found a special kinship with the SMMEF, since they have similar missions

to ensure a

vibrant educational experience for all students.

The SMC Faculty

Association does this by ensuring that all of Santa Monica College’s

faculty members can educate students in a work environment conducive to

learning.

Tom

Peters, the Faculty Association’s Political Director, presented the

check to the Educational Foundation’s leadership at the event.

“The work

the Foundation

is doing is really a service to the entire community. We’re proud to

support this great cause,” Peters said. “It was also great to share the

experience with our friends and family, and have them take part in the

fun.”
