Delta State University staff fed more than 60 families and donated more than 400 toys for local families during two annual giving campaigns this year.
The Delta State Administrative Staff Council special projects committee sponsors both of the drives.
Rhonda Loper, special projects committee chair for DSU Administrative Staff Council, said that the campus donated 59 bags and nine boxes of food during the annual “Feed a Family” drive. Two members of Delta State’s staff received a bag each, and the remaining 57 bags were delivered to the Bolivar County Family and Children Services office. The nine boxes of food were donated to local churches for their food pantry programs.
For the annual Toy Drive,” more than 425 toys were donated, including two bicycles, nine scooters, and several other large toys. These gifts also were delivered to the Bolivar County Family & Children’s Services, who will distribute them to families in need across Bolivar County.
“Once again, the DSU family has come together to make this another successful ‘giving season,'” Loper said. “This act of selfless giving is what continues to help meet the needs of our community.”
She added, “This year, were once again happy to partner with area churches and members of the community, as the news continues to spread about our efforts. I want to personally thank everyone who participated. Until next year, when we get to do it all over again, richest blessings!”
