By doing so it gives the opportunity for students to learn about different cultures and support one another.

They are collecting donations at the Student life Bldg. 46 Rm 133 on North Campus. The items needed are adult face masks, hand sanitizer, bathroom toiletries, sanitary pads, baby supplies, clothing, stuffed animals and welcome to Florida signs.
