The college community is gathering supplies to contribute to MooreMart, a non-profit organization that sends care packages to military members, clinics, schools, and orphanages in Iraq, Kuwait, and Afghanistan. A number of times throughout the year, MooreMart gathers the supplies and packs all the items for shipping. For their November packing event, they hope to pack and ship more than 4,000 Christmas Stockings as well as humanitarian aid to schools and orphanages throughout Iraq and Afghanistan.
