Ivy Tech students donate winter items to Afghan refugees

COLUMBUS, Ind. — Ivy Tech Community College students raised more than $900 to purchase winter items for Afghan children housed at Camp Atterbury.

Students in the Student Leadership Academy (SLA), a leadership development program designed specifically for Ivy Tech students, collected donations during an eight-week campaign they called “Helping Camp Atterbury: A Winter Drive.” The money raised was used to purchase winter items for children, including socks, sweatshirts, gloves, and jackets.

Some fun items, such as stuffed animals and soccer balls, were also included. Donation boxes were set up at Ivy Tech campuses in Columbus, Franklin, and Shelbyville.
