Students from the Honors Club at Sul Ross State University recently raised $61 dollars, which — along with toiletries during a recent drive — was donated to the Family Crisis Center of the Big Bend (FCCBB). The Club held a toiletry drive that collected items such as soap, shampoo and conditioners, body wash, toothpaste, tooth brushes, deodorant and handmade bags.Dr. Kathy Stein, advisor and director of the Honors Club and the Sul Ross Honors Program, handmade several small bags as part of the effort.
The Club also sold “Love Shouldn’t Hurt” ribbons around campus at $1 each to be worn in honor of Domestic Violence Awareness month throughout in October.
This is the third year the Honors Club has promoted Domestic Violence Awareness to students and the second year for a toiletry drive on the Sul Ross campus.
