Around this time of year, everyone looks to give back. While you should always think of those less fortunate throughout the entire year, the holidays really are a season of giving. Fortunately, loads of organizations on the Utica College campus have that very idea in mind when it comes to various events.
Alpha Phi Omega donated Thanksgiving meals to those in need a few weeks ago. It was incredibly rewarding to see the happy faces of the families as they received the food.
The Asa Gray Biological society made holiday cards for a local nursing home and even went caroling. It was fun to be creative when making the cards, and the group even got compliments on them! The singing was also great fun for those who went.
Charitable events can be incredibly fun, while also being worthwhile. I love being creative and designing things (like cards!), but it can also be as simple as donating a toy for the holiday season.
Utica College still has several events going on that students can participate in. Plus, as the holidays come up think about what you, as a individual, can do to help out! It’s always nice to spread some holiday cheer.
