College of the Rockies Students’ Association spearheaded an Operation Christmas Child campaign that wrapped up on Friday, November 18.
The Students’ Association made shoe boxes available and the boxes were then filled by students (and a couple staff members too). The Students’ Association will now cover the $7 shipping fee per box to have them sent to children in need.
Students’ Association VP, Jerod Dobson explains why the SA got involved: “A lot of people want a way to be charitable, even students who are on a limited budget. Our participation in this campaign provided a way for students to be able to afford to give to those who are less fortunate.”
In all – over 30 boxes were filled and will be heading out to make the lives of children in developing countries a little brighter this Christmas season. Seeing our students embrace the opportunity to give to those in need is certainly part of what makes us #SmallCollegeProud
