HIGH POINT, N.C., Dec. 6, 2016 – High Point University’s Sigma Sigma Sigma sorority and the HPU community made Christmas cards for children at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Medical Center in hopes of adding some magic to their holidays.
“Sigma loves giving students the opportunity to make holiday cards for the kids at the UNC Children’s Hospital,” says Jackie Poolos, sorority president. “It allows us to make their days a little brighter.”
This event was a part of the sorority’s Week of Kindness. During the week, the sorority put together bags of candy and cookies to distribute to HPU faculty, Campus Enhancement and Security to thank them for everything that they do for the HPU community.
New this year, the sorority also placed sticky notes throughout campus with positive, inspirational reminders for fellow students.
Sigma Sigma Sigma sorority regularly contributes its time and philanthropic efforts to the hospital by visiting and spending time with the children, and by donating money to fund play therapy programs.
“Our chapter has helped fund the play therapy wing there and we’ve been blessed to see firsthand where our funds go,” says Poolos. “Many of the kids may not get the opportunity to be at home for the holidays, so this is just one way to let them know that someone is thinking of them during this busy season!”
