Honors college students host holiday party for kids supported by outreach group | Community Spirit
University of Southern Mississippi Honors College students took time out recently from preparing for finals week to bring a smile to the faces of some local children.
The Honors College Ambassadors hosted a holiday party Dec. 7 at the Aldersgate Mission, a community outreach organization for underserved children who live in the Briarfield Housing Complex in east Hattiesburg and the surrounding community. It provides after-school programming for more than 50 youth in grades 4-12.
Southern Miss Honors College students gave a back-to-school party for the children early in the semester, providing backpacks and school supplies. The group decided to follow that with the holiday party, where they brought cookies, cake and other refreshments for the children.
