ROCK HILL, S.C. - Winthrop University’s chapter of Pi Sigma Alpha, one of the most active political science honor societies of its size in the country, will collect books, magazines and nonperishable food items this month to send to four military personnel in Iraq and Afghanistan.
A collection box will be outside the door of 346 Bancroft Hall on the university campus until Nov. 5.
Contributions could include: used or new paperback books, new or used magazines, nonperishable food items (such as single serving microwavable raviolis), beef jerky, DVDs and toiletry items of all sizes and for both men and women. In the case of monetary donations, the chapter will accept financial help with the shipping costs, which are estimated to be about $100.
Two years ago, the chapter had an outstanding response from the Rock Hill community when it sponsored a Food and Warmth Drive for the Blackmon Road community.
