The Office of Campus Ministry would like to thank all the departments and offices that participated in the "Adopt-A-Platoon" project. Campus Ministry was able to send 13 boxes containing almost 200 pounds of gifts to soldiers overseas, including public safety officers Gloria Holder and Antonio Coley, and alumnus Brain Ante, who are all currently in Iraq. Campus Ministry also sent more than 90 individual packages to a chaplain who will distribute the gifts to other soldiers in Iraq. The cost of sending packages was defrayed through $200 in donations for postage. Campus Ministry thanks the CUA community for its genorosity and support and invites everyone to pray for all the soldiers who are serving the country during the holiday season.
