Last month, Ferrum College Delta Chi fraternity members helped package and deliver 256 pairs of new shoes and new socks to each student at Ferrum Elementary School in Ferrum, Va. The gift of shoes and socks was made possible through the partnership of Convoy of Hope Rural Compassion, Endicott Assembly of God Church, Endicott Assembly of God Women’s Ministries, and Tri Area Community Health Office Manager Martha Puckett. Delta Chi members bagged each pair of shoes matching the correct name with the correct size, grouped them by teacher, and then helped deliver the shoes and socks to the students.
“Delta Chi seemed to have such a great time living up to the Ferrum College motto, ‘Not Self, But Others,'” said Ferrum College Assistant Director of Financial Aid and Blue Ridge District School Board Member Julie Nix.
