San Jacinto College students lend helping hand for the season

A group of San Jacinto College (SJC) students from South Campus psychology professor Dr. Dawn Eaton’s child growth and development class recently volunteered their time at the Ronald McDonald House of Galveston for a community service project. The eight SJC students collected a total of $200 from fellow South Campus psychology professor Dr. Marylou Robin’s classes, helped shop for toys, wrap gifts, and cook food. The Ronald McDonald House of Galveston is a “home away from home” for the families of children who are seeking medical treatment at the University of Texas Medical Branch, Shriners Hospital for Children, and Transitional Learning Center. The House serves as an alternative to an isolated hotel room where the families and children enjoy cheerful surroundings and the support of other families, volunteers, and staff.
