The group hopes to take vitamins to distribute to the villagers that they will serve as that part of the world faces several nutritional challenges that can have long-term consequences, particularly for children and pregnant women.

The group is looking for new and unopened bottles of prenatal vitamins, children’s chewable multi-vitamins, or adult multi-vitamins. Donation boxes are located throughout campus, including outside of 119 Founders’ Hall and outside of the main office. Public donations are greatly appreciated.
