The month-long drive collected nearly 20 large bags of clothing and non-perishable items from various locations around the Romeoville Main Campus.
“It was a big success and we received more donations than we expected,” commented Neena Gopalan, faculty advisor and assistant professor of psychology. “In addition to helping many people, it was a good learning experience for our students.”
The student organization’s officers who helped coordinate the event were: Sarah Leahy, Yulma Martinez and Katie Puckett.
