To help build relationships with local health organizations and shed light on inconsistencies in the Huntington area, the new Marshall University Health Science Society organization is sponsoring a donation drive geared towards infant and toddler supplies.
“The infant and toddler drive will not only allow us to help babies in need,” Jay Salters, secretary of the Health Science Society, said. “We are building connections though our work and being the change in the community that we want to see.”
Salters also said he believes it is important for HSS to not only make a name for themselves on campus but in the community, too.
The HSS, which is geared towards assisting health science students with different pre-professional development opportunities, wanted to celebrate the official establishment of the organization by having its first donation drive.
Whitney Crofcheck-Glenn, historian of the Health Science Society, said she is thrilled about beginning this transition from forming a society to a fully established society that is beginning community outreach.
“I hope to see a good amount of donations along with increased interest from health science students who want to gain more experience,” Crofcheck-Glenn said.
Donations can be dropped off in baby boxes located in Gullickson Hall Suite 100 and will be accepted until Wednesday, Nov. 20.
