Wegmans School of Pharmacy Fills 95 Boxes of Supplies for Operation Christmas Child
In November, the Wegmans School of Pharmacy's student chapter of Christian Pharmacist Fellowship International (CPFI) assembled and shipped 95 shoeboxes full of gifts for children throughout the world. The boxes were filled with items donated by St. John Fisher College faculty, staff, students, and friends.
The collection was for a service project called "Operation Christmas Child." The project, started by Samaritan's Purse International Relief in 1993, delivers shoeboxes filled with toys, school items, and toiletries to children in some of the world's most destitute areas.
On November 18, approximately 25 student volunteers took time to help organize all of the donated supplies, and then fill, wrap, and label the boxes. In addition to all of the items donated, the pharmacy students also raised $139 that helped cover the cost of shipping the boxes.
