UPDATE: ‘Bless You Bag’ project helped nearly 100 people in need

Academics, Press Releases, Student Life

Last month we shared with you some pictures from the Mount's Bless You Bag project spearheaded by our Veterans in Communities (VIC) student group. We are thrilled to give you an update that 98 people in need received a bag! The bags were delivered to The Joseph House and the Mary Magdalen House in Cincinnati. In addition, VIC was able to donate $250 worth of new socks, t-shirts and boxers to men in need at The Joseph House. They were also able to give 50 Christmas cards with McDonald's coupons to the Tri-State Veterans Community Allicance (TVCA).

These contributions were made possible by donations from those in the Mount community. A big thank you to everyone, especially VIC members, who made this project happen! We'll be doing more great things in 2017.
