GA-PCOM's Student Government Association collected toys, supplies for area shelters.
If you look closely, you’ll see angels in our midst at GA-PCOM.
Simply visit the Atrium where an “Angel Tree,” surrounded by a multitude of donated
gifts, serves as a reminder of the generosity and goodwill of GA-PCOM students, faculty
and staff members.
The Angel Tree project, a campuswide endeavor to collect wished-for toys and supplies to give back to the community during this
gift-giving season, was started last year by Hershika Patel (PharmD ’18), the 2016-17 Student Government
Association (SGA) president. With her help, the SGA continued the project this year
and hopes to make it an annual endeavor.
SGA students, including current SGA president Tyler Raeford (MS ’18), are experiencing the spirit of the season by delivering the donated gifts to shelters
“We received about 65 gift donations from individuals and organizations," Raeford
Items—including toys, clothing, bedding, toiletries and cleaning supplies—were selected
from “wish lists” each shelter provided. These donations, he added, are being delivered
to local shelters, such as the Atlanta Day Shelter for Women and Children and Solomon’s
