Students make 96 gifts for children around the world
Student members of the Christian Legal Society at Stetson recently created 96 shoebox gifts for Operation Christmas Child, an initiative that distributes gifts to children around the world. Student volunteers tabled on the Gulfport campus to collect boxes.
“Growing up I remembered making the shoebox gifts each year with my mom,” said student Tayler Uselton, who serves as vice-president of the Christian Legal Society and president of the Second Amendment Society at Stetson.
“This is the largest collection I have been a part of organizing,” said Uselton, who became involved in the annual gift-giving drive while she was an undergraduate student at Florida State University.
“It is hard to get students, especially those who may live on a tight budget and strict time schedule, to take the time to create a gift for a child across the world who they will never meet.”
Uselton, who delivered the collected boxes to Bradenton, Florida, for distribution, said that both students and the community were eager to help.
