Members of the Student North Dakota Education Association (SNDEA) at the United Tribes Technical College (UTTC), sold Turkey Dinner raffle tickets in November and donated 75% of their monies collected from the raffle to aide two schools in Biloxi, MS; Jeff Davis and Nicholas Elementary. The local effort is part of a statewide Student North Dakota Education Association (SNDEA) initiative called "Pack the Pack for Katrina". Collections of books, teacher resources, materials, backpacks, and money will be used by teachers and students returning to school. The UTTC chapter presented the donation to NDEA on November 30.
