Friends University community celebrates 31 years of volunteering for Salvation Army Service Day Dec. 8

Friends University staff, faculty and students will be celebrating 31 years of working together to make Christmas merrier for hundreds of needy families in Wichita. University representatives and students from across campus will embrace the spirit of the season for the annual Salvation Army Service Day on Dec. 8.  

Service is one of Friends University’s RISE values (respect, inclusion, service, excellence), part of the core values to provide a commitment to servant leadership, caring for each other and the community.  

The University community will sort toys and gifts, prepare and disperse donated gifts, decorate the Salvation Army distribution center, wrap gifts and assist with the organization’s Angel Tree and Star of Hope programs. 

 Friends University, a Christian University of Quaker heritage, equips students to honor God and serve others by integrating their intellectual, spiritual and professional lives.
