The women's social club Omega Phi is participating in Operation Christmas Child, a holiday service project through the international relief organization Samaritan's Purse.
Members of the social club invited the campus community to donate items, which will be packed into boxes and shipped to children in need around the world.
Donated items include hygiene products such as soap and toothpaste, school supplies, and small toys.
The project was organized by Danielle Berry, Omega Phi service project coordinator. "I chose this project for the club partially because it is a tradition," says Berry, noting that this is the seventh year the club has collected items for this cause. "Not only does the organization give these boxes to children, but they also share the gospel with them. That, to me, is a huge reason to choose Operation Christmas Child over other similar programs."
Berry predicts they will have enough donated items to pack 20 or more boxes. The final day to donate items will be Friday, November 15. Contact Berry with questions.
Update, November 22: Omega Phi has announced that they exceeded their goal and had enough donated materials to pack 38 boxes.
