OCC Collection Day

November 6, 2019 12:00 pm-2:00 pm

CSU is setting a record-breaking goal for Operation Christmas Child this year, and we need the entire CSU family to help. Last year we packed over 2,400 boxes, and we hope to more than double that number by packing 5,000 boxes this year. If we can reach this goal, CSU will have packed more boxes than any other college or university in the United States!

Drop your box off on Wednesday, Nov. 6 from noon to 2 p.m. at tables around the Reflection pond. Students will receive a chapel credit for dropping off a box (designated spot in front of Lightsey Chapel)! Students graduating in December can pack up to 20 boxes and write a 1-2 page paper for up to 10 chapel credits!
