Students in the Hardin-Simmons University chapter of Alpha Phi Omega, a national service organization, will be collecting notes of encouragement for people affected by the Boston bombings.
The organization is setting up a booth on Tuesday and Wednesday, April 23-24, 2013, in Moody Center from 11a.m. – 1 p.m. Alpha Phi Omega students are providing cards for HSU students, faculty, and staff members to write down prayers and encouragements.
A group called 26 Acts of Kindness will help the club members distribute the notes in the communities of Boston most affected by last week’s tragedy.
