Palomar College’s Phi Theta Kappa is working closely with the Promises To Kids organization to make a difference in the lives of children in local areas.
Phi Theta Kappa’s chapter, Alpha Omega Rho, is doing their part by promoting a donation drive which runs from Sept. 1 to Nov. 30.
Donations of toys and books are welcome and club members will place boxes in Club Hub, Room SU-19. People will also be able to donate in booths during the club’s events.
“Our chapter firmly believes that, member or not, college students have an enormous ability to influence the public when they work together,” Club President Shauna Kearn said in an email.
“This is an easy way for busy students to support foster children without straining their already busy schedules. Donating to this drive could bring joy to a child. There’s nothing better than that.”
Phi Theta Kappa is a club on campus which aims to “to assist in the success of their peers as well as improve the quality of life for those in their community,” according to the club’s website.
According to the organization’s website, promises2kids.org, P2K is a nonprofit organization which helps the children of San Diego County by bringing a sense of peace to those who don’t receive the comforts they deserve.
