DSD Collects for Horizons for Homeless

It’s that time of year again to attend Yankee! Every year we all get so much free stuff at Yankee, some of which we don’t need.

Tufts is all about service to the community, so: Consider donating them!!!
Delta Sigma Delta will be collecting toothbrushes, toothpastes, floss, and any other dental tool that can be used by the average person to maintain oral health.
These will then be donated to Horizons for Homeless children, a non profit organization that helps children of homeless families to continue normal growth and development during transitional periods. 

They will then be distributed to family shelters throughout Boston!
DSD will place a large box in the 7th floor student lounge, drop all donations in there.
