The Hammond Rotary Christmas Parade is scheduled for Friday, December 5th. We are asking interested student organizations if they would like to participate in our "In The Zone" Family event that will take place in the parking lot between the Pennington and the Lab School. The event provides an alcohol and tobacco free area for families to attend the Christmas Parade. Games and Activities are provided to children as they wait for the parade by various community. We are seeking interested student and GREEK organizations to provide their own children's activity or game. Please contact Annette Baldwin at the University Counseling Center 985-549-3894 for more information.

Since 2005, many Southeastern Louisiana University student organizations have leaped into the holiday season through giving by providing toys for children in the local community. The Nu Delta Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc; Nu Omega Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc; the Eta Lambda Chapter of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc and a fluctuating host of other organization here on Southeastern's campus collaborate to put on the "Toys from the Heart" toy drive. This year we are joined by the Omicron Nu Chapter of Phi Beta Sigma, African Alumni Association, Student United Way, and NAACP. The organizations expect to collect enough toys for 400 children this holiday season. This is the ninth consecutive year for the toy drive but this year the student coordinators have voted to change the format to benefit selected children in community programs such as Head Start and the Successful Transitions Program in the Hammond Area. The organizations are asking the Hammond community and all Southeastern departments, faculty, staff and students to make a donation of a toy or a monetary donation toward the purchase of a new toy. New, unwrapped toys may be delivered to donation boxes located in the Student Union East and West sides from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Nov. 3-6, Nov. 10-13, Nov 17-20, Nov 24, 25, and Dec 1st and 2nd. Donation boxes will also be located inside the Pennington Student Activity Center, located at the corner of University Avenue and General Pershing Avenue and in the SGA office in Mims Hall, room 118.
