UTPB Sociology Club makes holidays special for disadvantaged children across West Texas

ODESSA, TX (KWES) - Wednesday evening, the University of Texas Permian Basin Sociology Club will donate gifts to the Salvation Army collected for children around West Texas.

Thanks to generous donors, the club’s annual holiday project was able to shop for 30 children and give $500 donations to two local charities.

“We love doing this, it’s our 17th year,” Sociology Club Advisor Dr. Joanna Hadjicostandi said. “It’s important because we are helping children have a nice holiday. We are giving them joy.”

A reception will be held in the 3rd floor foyer of the Mesa Building at 5:30 pm.
