Columbia County Angel Tree: The chemistry club, Lambda Alpha Beta (LAB), in conjunction with the Sigma Tau Delta English Honor Society, has co-coordinated the Columbia County Angel Tree for the past several years.  This program works with the help of Columbia County DHS to ensure that the children in need  in the county receive Christmas gifts.  The student organizations coordinate the placing of angels on the tree, distribution of angels to sponsors, receipt of gifts from sponsors, and the distribution of the gifts to those families served by the Angel Tree.  This is a daunting task for any student groups made all the more special that the students find so much time to donate in the weeks leading not only up to Christmas, but also their own final exams.  It has been very rewarding for all involved as we have seen the number of children sponsored on the tree rise from 250 to up over 900 in the past few years. Please contact Dr. Tim Schroeder for more information.
