Touro Campus Community Lives Mission by Providing Donations to Las Vegas Valley During Holiday Season
The Touro University Nevada campus community exemplified its mission of service to humanity during the holiday season as students and employees both donated heavily to local organizations.
Students, faculty, and staff held canned food, clothing, and toy drives for local charities and provided some holiday cheer to some of the Las Vegas Valley’s underserved populations.
“I am so proud of the Touro University Nevada community for coming together to help families most in-need this holiday season,” said Dr. Andrew Priest, Touro University Nevada’s Campus President and Provost. “Service to humanity is a core tenet of the Touro mission. Our students, faculty, and staff live our mission every day. There is no more important time to provide for those most in need than during the holidays.”
The Mid-Level Professionals Group (MLPG) held a toy drive where members donated toys and then wrapped them during a quarterly meeting. The gifts were then delivered to students at a local high school.
“Giving back and serving the community is what Touro University Nevada is all about,” said Cameron Mastin, a Learning Specialist in OASIS and MLPG Chair. “MLPG just happens to be another vessel for that because we are a group of employees with big hearts. The holidays can be a tough time for many people, and I am glad that we were able to make it a more joyful time for some families.”Community Health & Service
