Once again this year, the College lent a helping hand to Sponsor-A-Family, the volunteer effort organized by the Salvation Army to provide holiday assistance to families in need.

Coordinated through the Joseph McKeen Center for the Common Good, academic departments and college offices, athletic teams, college houses, student groups and individuals, this year sponsored 32 families.

Having been provided “wish lists” with sizes, children’s interests and other information, the college groups were able to buy clothing, toys, supermarket gift cards and other items for families in need.
