CCU Greek Life students make blankets and donate them to a non-profit organization
CONWAY, SC (WMBF) – Student organizations on college campuses often find ways to improve the community, for CCU students it helps to keep others warm during the holiday season.
Many students like CCU Junior, Jada Forbes, spend their time between classes and a part-time job making blankets on campus.
“I think the most rewarding part is that we can just give all of these blankets to people who really need them,” Forbes said. “Yes, I enjoy it, but I think I know, as my boss Amanda and Lindsey.” said when they went to drop off the blankets they were so happy to see us.”
CCU Fraternity and Sorority Life makes handmade blankets that are donated to the nonprofit Meals on Wheels of Horry County.
The blankets will be distributed to the seniors of Grand Strand for Thanksgiving.
So far, CCU Fraternity and Sorority Life Director Amanda Eisele said they have made and donated nearly 300 blankets to the organization.
“Seeing all the students come in and learn how to make the blankets, produce them, and take real pride in their work,” said Eisele.
She said this is the first time she and the organization have participated in a Meals on Wheels project.
Eisele said she was surprised to see how many students, not even in Greek Life, come to make blankets.
She said her goal is to make around 400 blankets to be donated to those in need by Thanksgiving.
