Shop With A Mustang (SWAM)
Shop with a Mustang (SWAM) is an annual Mane Link event in early December where Kennesaw Mountain students raise money to take children from the surrounding community holiday shopping. Each group of mentors is assigned a child to spend time with shopping and picking out clothing and gifts. The event starts early Saturday morning with breakfast, pictures with Santa, and shopping at Woodstock Square. All of the money used towards SWAM is fundraised by Mane Link, through multiple different fundraisers as well as walking around lunch with donation buckets for students to throw spare change into.
