The Radiography Student Organization (RSO) at Somerset Community College recently donated items to God’s Food Pantry in Somerset, Kentucky to help aid people who are homeless. Radiography students, along with the faculty sponsor of RSO, Shanda Catron, donated approximately 450 pounds of personal care items.
SCC’s Radiography Clinical Coordinator Shanda Catron said: “our healthcare students have a desire to help others and this was evident in the generosity of the students, who went into action once they learned there was a need for personal care items for the homeless through God’s Food Pantry.” The students and Catron purchased the needed items from their own, personal funds.
The items donated to God’s Food Pantry included toothbrushes, toothpaste, gloves, feminine hygiene products, deodorant, lotion, and other miscellaneous items.
“I am proud of the way this group came together to fill a community need, and I feel confident that as future radiographers, these students will continue to share the desire to help others in time of need,” stated Catron.
The mission of God’s Food Pantry is to feed the hungry people of Pulaski County. The number of families needing help in our community continues to grow, and therefore, there is an ever growing need for food, donations, thoughts and prayers.
