Holiday donation drives
Students and staff looking to spread some Christmas cheer will have lots of opportunities this month.
Staff Advisory Council is holding a Firefighters for Kids toy drive through Dec. 13. Drop off a new, unwrapped toy in one of the donation boxes around campus, or give a check or gift to a Staff Advisory Council representative.
Also, Student Engagement and Leadership is collecting household items for residents of Scholar House, a housing development for students with families. Currently, Scholar House has three Columbus State student/families and seven from Ohio State.
To participate, drop off donations at Nestor Hall 116 or contact Sandra M. Hill (firstname.lastname@example.org) by Dec. 18. Scholar House is in need of household items such as laundry baskets, laundry detergent, linens, socks and blankets.
Last month, Columbus State's Delaware Campus held a successful food drive. Organizers, in conjunction with Ohio State University Marion, collected 2,616 items and $200 in monetary donations, more than twice their original goal. Items were loaded up Nov. 30 and delivered to People in Need Inc. of Delaware County.
