Phi Theta Kappa and other ASPC clubs on campus are collecting the following items to participate in Operation Christmas Child. This project sends simple gifts outside the United States to children affected by war, poverty, natural disaster, famine and disease; and to children living on Native American reservations in the U.S.

Only new items can be accepted and must be small enough to fit in a regular sized shoe box. Most items can be purchased at the dollar store. PTK will be handing out extra credit tickets if faculty wish to participate in giving extra credit (one extra credit ticket per item donated).

Children receiving these Christmas shoe boxes love to get photos, so we will include photos of the students/staff at PC. If anyone would like us to include a photo with their donation, we will ensure their picture is sent with one of the shoe boxes.
