Member Gizelle Ortiz-Velazquez shared news from City College: From July 17th-August 8th, the Miami campus held a back-to-school supply drive. The donation drive was held to benefit the children served by the Children’s Home Society of Florida (CHS), www.chsfl.org. Faculty and staff gave generously and the campus was able to donate five boxes filled with notebooks, pencils, pens, markers, crayons, folders, rulers and many other school supplies.
Maria Santos, CHS’s Volunteer Coordinator, shared that over 1,500 backpacks filled with school supplies are provided to the children served by the organization from pre-school to high school. Many of the children are in foster care and do not have the financial means to purchase school supplies. Ms. Santos expressed her sincere gratitude to City College Miami campus for their donations. The Miami campus will continue to support the great work done by the Children’s Home Society of Florida by organizing a Thanksgiving food drive and a toy drive for the holidays this year.
