01 Jan Adopt a family
The event required participation from both members and students in the department. Money was collected from students, faculty and staff in the department to raise money for “Adopt a Family.” They chapter raised $2,000 and adopted 4 families in need during the holidays. Two of the families were Hurricane Katrina victims who relocated to our area and two families were local. Members collected money, identified the families needs, purchased the food and gifts, and wrapped and delivered them to each family.
