Report by Freshman Chair: Saadia

Today we accomplished a lot for the meeting in activities. We made signs for all the boxes and had them distributed out. Mariam and Safra helped coordinate and they said they would just have the boxes for the highschoolers kept in the student center area, they most likely will fill you in on more details. 

All the other division boxes were taken and distributed, we were told that we were just to ask a staff member nearby where to store the boxes until the day of the drive.

We also have signs ready to go for the people who signed up for distribution ready to go.
