Students give back to community

Lone Star College–CyFair students were not only focused on finals this December, but on community outreach with toy, food and shoe drives.

The Lone Star College–CyFair Student Ambassadors brightened the holiday for 14 families through Cypress Assistance Ministries with their Angel Tree Toy Drive. Participants adopted 62 angel ornaments to fill requests for toys, gift cards and baskets.

Delta Epsilon Chi members not only adopted one of those angels in the ambassador’s effort, they also volunteered in the Bear Creek Assistance Ministries’ Christmas Shoppe.

The Student Nurses’ Association collected donations for their Second Annual Tots-n-Teens Toy Drive benefiting the Harris County Hospital District with donations valued at $10,000.

The college’s Sign and Deaf Culture Club’s “Hunger Buster” food drive benefited the Boys and Girls Country.

The Choral Department held a toy drive which also benefited Cypress Assistance Ministries.  

Phi Theta Kappa’s Recycling Shoes effort benefited school children El Salvador collecting nearly 100 pairs of shoes held on Texas Recycle Day Nov. 15.
