This weekend SCU student volunteers assisted a local nonprofit agency Giving Children Hope in sending life-saving supplies to Syrian refugees. The civil war in Syria has caused thousands of people to leave Syria and seek refuge in neighboring countries of Jordan and Lebanon. SCU students sorted, packed, and prepared containers of clothing which included cold weather items to help sustain the refugees through winter. The Giving Children Hope organization relies on volunteers to help them respond efficiently and deliver supplies to emergency disaster situations in the US and around the globe. Thank you to the SCU students for giving their time to help others in need.
