Holiday Toy Drive
By Danny Mejia, PE | Community Service Committee Co-Chair
ASCE Orange County continued its partnership with the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers’ (SHPE) Support of Orphanages in Need Through Resources, Innovation, and Empowerment (SONRIE) program by hosting a Toy Drive. Toys were collected throughout November and December.
A big portion of the toys were collected at ASCE OC’s Annual History and Heritage/Student Scholarship Night event. Toys were donated by ASCE OC’s professionals and university students.
SHPE SONRIE program members will deliver the toys to the community of Ojos Negros Baja California, Mexico, during the holiday season.
ASCE OC YMF, community service committee, would like to thank the History & Heritage Night and Student Scholarship event coordinators and attendees for all their contributions. Thanks to you and the generous donors, the community of Ojos Negros will have a great holiday season!
