Phi Delta Phi collected over 600 articles of clothing through donations from individuals at the law school and people associated with students who collected independently.
They also collected toys. They worked with the University Baptist Church for distribution of their collected items.
The Student Bar Association conducted their annual canned food drive. This year they worked with the local Jackson County Bar
Association to gather food for the Food Pantry in Murphysboro, IL. That effort resulted in a fully loaded Food Pantry van and $300 in a cash donation.
