To honor those who serve in our country’s military, the class of 2017 is collecting items in the Thomas Merton Center on campus — and at Saturday night’s basketball game — to send overseas for the holidays.
Collection barrels will be set up at each entrance to the men’s basketball game against Canisius on Saturday, Nov. 16. Those attending the game are encouraged to bring an item.
Students and community members are asked to bring beef jerky, trail mix, canned ravioli, microwavable food, gum, wet wipes, holiday and birthday cards, footballs, Frisbees, Q-tips and nail clippers to the Merton Center throughout the week to add to the collection.
The idea surfaced with a group of freshmen after writing letters during Welcome Days to veterans and those currently serving, said Sr. Suzanne Kush, C.S.S.F., director of the Franciscan Center for Social Concern.
“There was a group who made two quilts (for soldiers) and now they’re doing this package project,” she said.
