A long-held tradition at Stetson University, Greenfeather originated in 1952 as an autumn carnival where students raised funds for local charities. Over the decades, Greenfeather has expanded to a weeklong event that brings awareness to philanthropy and issues surrounding the DeLand community. In recent years, Greenfeather has merged into our annual Homecoming week to bring the event some needed spirit.
During this week, Stetson students, faculty, and alumni will come together to help raise $10,000 for a local non-profit organization. The Greenfeather Grant Recipient for 2018 will be the My Angel With Paws. Located in DeLand, My Angel With Paws is a volunteer-based non-profit committed to the rescuing, breeding, training, placement and continuing education for service dogs and facility dogs in the state of Florida. The train dogs to help people with disabilities live fuller, more independent lives. My Angel With Paws will use the grant to assist with the continued restoration efforts of their facility after sustaining damages from hurricane Irma.
