On Wednesday, November 30, Santa bucks returns to North Lake College! A one-day event best described as part flea market and part shopping spree, this popular holiday tradition will take place from 9:00 a.m. until 6:30 p.m. on the Central Campus in the Student Life Center Multipurpose Room.
After presenting a student I.D. and signing in at the cashier's station, student shoppers are given $30 in "currency". They are free to browse through the on-campus marketplace of gently-used items and make purchases using their Santa Bucks.
Throughout the year, students, faculty and staff at North Lake donate items to the Santa Bucks program. These donations help students who are challenged by the costs of attending school and paying for basics such as transportation, childcare, food, and clothing.
