Student Projects Benefit Community Agencies During Holiday Season

(December 19, 2014, Aiken, SC) Aiken Technical College students set out to spread cheer and help others in the local community this holiday season. 
 
Students in ATC’s Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society and Student Government Association coordinated a holiday giving tree drive on campus to collect toys and other items for children at Helping Hands, Inc., a residential facility for children in Aiken.
 
Throughout November, ATC students and employees selected ornaments from a decorated Christmas tree in the College’s Student Activities Center and generously donated the toys or needed items listed on each ornament. ATC students visited Helping Hands on December 10 to deliver the donations and spend an afternoon with the children. 
 
The students enjoyed the opportunity to help children in the area celebrate the holiday season.  

In November, ATC’s PTK Alpha Xi Lambda chapter held a bake sale on campus in connection with the honor society’s November 19 celebration of its founding. Students raised $100 for Christ Central Ministries in Aiken, and presented the donation to the nonprofit earlier this month. 
 
ATC’s SGA allows students to serve as a voice for ATC students, plan campus and community-wide activities and encourage student engagement at ATC. 
 
The PTK honor society recognizes the academic and service achievements of two-year college students and provides opportunities for growth and development through honors, leadership and service.
