This December, Cal Epsilon continued a beloved holiday tradition of Operation Shoebox! Cal Epsilon partnered with a local food bank, the Bulldog Pantry, to provide a Christmas present for underprivileged children. Members spent several weeks collecting wrapping paper and shoeboxes, and then officers went out and bought fun toys, toiletries, and educational supplies based on gender and age. On December 14th, members gathered together for some delicious food, Christmas music, and a wrapping extravaganza. 75 shoeboxes were wrapped, filled with gifts, and then delivered to the grateful staff at the Bulldog Pantry. Children coming through on the 22nd of the December got an extra surprise with their bag of food. It was a win for all involved! And stay tuned for more work with the Bulldgo Pantry, as Cal Epsilon is planning a clothing drive for them in the spring!
