Cheerful Givers group holds workshop at noon today

The campus Cheerful Givers group — which helps homeless and low-income children celebrate birthdays by providing them gift bags — is holding a bag-filling workshop today, Nov. 13, from noon to 1 p.m. in HUB 200 A, B and C.

The workshop, timed to reflect National Philanthropy Day (Nov. 15). Group members will hold what they call a Birthday Bag Blitz and also tell visitors how their group helps underprivileged children.
