Professor David Griffis and his BUS 301 class
partnered with the Bay area non-profit Warm Wishes, in its annual
tradition to celebrate the season of giving. The December 2012 Warm
Wishes Backpack campaign was a huge success! The
group distributed 5000 backpacks filled with warm socks, a winter cap
& scarf, wool gloves, a rain poncho and handmade Christmas card,
into San Francisco and the Greater Bay Area, in an effort to share with
those less fortunate and celebrate the human spirit.
USF Students helped the less fortunate by giving out backpacks filled with warm socks, a winter cap & scarf, wool gloves, a rain poncho and handmade Christmas card.
One of the
Warm Wishes recipients, Mark-from Haight Street, requested that student
Philip Malone Kernan sign his shawl to capture the moment.
we wrap up this holiday season, let us remember, "It's not what you have
at the end of the day, it's what you've shared along the way that
counts" (as quoted by Professor Emeritus, Eamonn Barrett).
