50 Acts of Kindness
In honor of Columbus State's 50th anniversary, Student Engagement and Leadership (SEaL) is coordinating "50 Acts of Kindness," a special drive to recognize and celebrate our 50 years by helping others.
SEaL has suggested 50 types of acts that show kindness such as: leaving a nice tip for your waiter at a restaurant, holding the door open for someone, smiling and saying hello to a stranger, or putting a dime in an expired meter on the street. Small gestures such as these can make someone's day, as well as your own!
No. 8 on SEaL's list is to bring non-perishable food items to the Columbus State Birthday Party on Sept. 30. SEAL will be collecting these items to donate to the Mid-Ohio Foodbank and to create an emergency food pantry on campus for those in need. Even if you didn't pick up a special donation bag at Welcome Day Aug. 28, you can still donate to this worthy cause and complete your Act of Kindness. Just bring a few items such as canned goods, granola bars, microwaveable meals, or instant oatmeal to the SEaL table at the Birthday Party.
