For the month of December, Remington College – Mobile Campus collected gifts to be given to underprivileged families in the Mobile area.
The faculty and staff collected items for five senior shut-ins through the local “Be a Santa to a Senior” program. In addition to the five seniors, faculty and staff collected toys and clothing for 10 children in need.
“We started out just doing the senior program. Then, someone gave us the names of three children who very likely would not be experiencing the joy of opening gifts on Christmas morning. Eventually, the number of children went from three to 10. Our faculty and staff truly outdid themselves. It was such a remarkable outpouring of generosity from the entire Campus,” said Executive Assistant Kristy King.
Campus President Stephen Backman weighed in on the efforts: “I am always amazed and pleased to see the generosity of our folks and the support they give to those in need. Everyone is feeling the pinch due to the economy, but they still come through to help those who need it the most. This is just awesome.”
