The efforts continue today with a series of phone calls from volunteers thanking donors of the school for their commitment to sustaining and growing the college.
Thursday’s event will touch more of a nationwide spectrum of people as students gather items to be donated to the Operation Healing Angel program, which supports wounded service members and their caregivers.
While the Operation Healing Angel participation reaches a much wider range of people, Eisenman feels the message remains the same.
“I think it’s really important that people remember that other people have different lives, different needs and challenges and that we all bring different talents to Clinton Community College,” she said. “If we can share those talents and our time, then perhaps we can improve our community and provide a service that others may not be able to.”
CCC student and Student Senate Treasurer Traci Handel agreed with Eisenman and added that although they may be a small group, their efforts are still making a difference.
“I think it’s a wonderful way to give back to the community,” Handel said. “It doesn’t take us anything to do it and it really makes you feel good.”
