Student Service Project Brings Christmas Joy

Nov. 25, 2014

Students from the Health and Human Development Inter-Club Council have collected 54 shoe boxes filled with gifts for children in impoverished countries.

Last year, the council donated just over 30 boxes that included toys, school supplies, toiletries and books. This year's shoeboxes will delivered to needy children as part of Operation Christmas Child.

 Kinesiology major Alyssa Jensen, chair of the Health and Human Development Inter-Club Council, said the students packed the shoeboxes as part of a service project.

 Jensen said the project is extremely beneficial way to touch the lives of others.

 "Operation Christmas Child is a wonderful organization, after participating in it last year, the turnout and interest was well over what we expected, Jensen said. "Being able to spread a little bit of our holiday spirit to children who are less fortunate is something that not everyone might get the chance to do."
