The Office of Diversity and Inclusion at the Sam M. Walton College of Business and the Zeta Phi Beta sorority collected and donated 500 bags filled with travel-size toiletries and more than 50 suitcases for the Northwest Arkansas Children’s Shelter in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
Walton College students, staff and faculty answered the call in February when the Office of Diversity and Inclusion requested donations to assist young people in need. Students and staff helped to assemble the bags during an open house style work session.
The shelter’s mission is to provide a safe haven, hope and high quality care for children who have been abandon, abused and neglected. Learn more about the shelter at nwacs.org.
The Walton College is committed to increasing students’ awareness of diversity and increasing the extent to which they value its significance.
