The school of Pharmacy recently collected 42 boxes for Operation Christmas Child. The boxes will be sent all over the world to children that do not receive Christmas presents.
The boxes contained a variety of presents for children between the ages of 2 and 14. Pharmacy students sent toys, race cars and dolls for the younger children and hygiene and beauty products for the older children.
“I think that this is a great project that will touch many children’s lives all over the world and show them the real reason that we celebrate Christmas,” said Christina Sudeen, a pharmacy student and participant in Operation Christmas Child. “I am glad that Belmont School of Pharmacy has participated in this project for the past two years, and I hope that it will be a tradition that the school will keep participating in for many years to come.”
