During the recent holiday season, the Panhellenic community was especially busy raising efforts to support our troops abroad by making and sending care packages with a touch of holiday spirit for the airmen. Auburn University Panhellenic far exceeded its apportionment for the United States Air Force, and we are very proud to the results which shows several holiday cards, toiletries and snacks for the airman in Kandahar, Afghanistan.
Panhellenic has been informed that the group greatly appreciated the kindness and snacks from home. The supplies were placed in a 24/7 ‘rest and relaxation’ room, which sees over 300 visitors a month. Here troops can pick up free toiletries, snacks, coffee, popcorn and similar items.
Panhellenic is proud to support our troops.
