Phi Beta Lambda (PBL) of Southwestern College, in association with Operation Shoebox, recently concluded a community-wide drive for supplies that are needed by troops serving all around the world.
Amy Buxman, PBL treasurer, reports that the month-long drive raised nearly $500, hand-written letters, and a large collection of supplies including foods and toiletries.
“I am very pleased with the response we received from both our student body at SC and the community of Winfield,” Buxman says. “It was nice to see people supporting a project that will benefit troops thousands of miles away from here. I hope to do the project again next year and get even more people involved.”
