Nu Alpha Psi creates donation trees for foster children's gifts

By Tara Harris

The sorority Nu Alpha Psi is accepting donations this holiday season for the National Youth Advocate Program for foster children.

Nu Alpha Psi was founded in the fall of 2007 by Lynn Torres. It is a sorority for non-traditional, mature female students. Their mission is to keep members connected with the university experience by providing opportunities through networking and access to social and academic resources.

The donations are being collected via giving tree. The giving trees are hand drawn by Torres's daughter, Saline.
There are two giving trees on campus. One tree is located on the 2nd floor of Student Center on the bridge near the cafeteria. The other is in the Main Classroom in front of room 137 Black Studies program.

There are over 50 children asking for a small gift. On the trees there are ornaments and candy canes with information such as the child’s name, age, the specific gift they would like and where to return the gift. Donors can also return their gifts to Renee Evans in Black Studies.

“As the holidays approach let’s not forget about those in need. [The donations] will put a smile on the children's faces and will mean a lot to them, the community and the sorority,” Lynn Torres said.

The donations are being collected until December 13th. Contact Nu Alpha Psi founder and President Lynn Torres for more information at 216-941-5846.
