Southern students participated in "Stuff the Bus"
Southern University students participated in the “Stuff the Bus” event coordinated by WBRZ Channel 2, Office Depot, Raisin’ Canes and Volunteers in Public Schools on Wednesday July 17.
SU students, from different student organizations, volunteered in groups for two-hour increments, from 7:45 a.m. to 4:45 p.m., at Office Depot to help count, sort, packaged and purchase school supplies for students in Baton Rouge. Click for a link to WBRZ News story on “Stuff the Bus.”
WBRZ's Stuff the Bus school supply drive assists parents and teachers in Baton Rouge and Ascension Parish who find their students without school supplies due to economic hardship.
Karla Washington, president of the Beta Psi Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. and Collegiate 100 Black Women of SUBR, says “it was wonderful to see so many within the community offering school supplies to help students within the Baton Rouge area.”
Student leader Jamal Bell expressed that he is especially proud that Southern University students were able to be a part of a very needed effort.
Other Southern student organizations that participated in the event included: the Senior Class Cabinet, the Beta Sigma Chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc., the Black History Club, and the Association for Women Students.
The Office of Student Organizations would like to thank all students who participated in the event. For future community service events and student organization information, please email the Ja'el Gordon, Coordinator for Student Organizations, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
