Campus contributions display holiday spirit to local family

Contributions by members of the OU-C campus community made the holidays a little more festive for a local family. Once again, donations were collected to purchase gifts for a needy family that was identified through the Child Development Center. More than $780 was raised, and the money was used to purchase such things as boots, coats, clothes and toys for a family with four children ranging in age from 4 to 14.

Also, canned goods were collected on campus and donated to a local food pantry.

“Strong classroom teaching is the lifeblood of any academic program, and having individuals who are the top practitioners in the field share their insights with our students is a strength of the Law Enforcement Technology program,” LET program coordinator Jim McKean said. “This helps to ensure that our students receive the training they need to become top-flight professionals and protect the citizens in their communities.”
