Psychology Club and Psi Chi's November Philanthropy and Meeting

Psi Chi is teaming up with Psychology Club to do a Stuffed Animal Drive to benefit Atrium Health Navicent Beverly Knight Olsen Children's Hospital! The stuffed animals MUST be NEW WITH TAGS, so keep that in mind, please! You can drop off your donations at the main psych department office in A&S 1-03. We would like to have all donations in by Monday, November 29th at noon, so please try to get them in before that date. The hospital not only uses the stuffies to comfort kids during some pretty scary times, but they also use them to explain procedures to help the kids understand before they have to have them done, so they are a vital part of the hospital!

Also, at the November meeting on the 17th at 5:30 p.m. in A&S 270, we will be gathering (safely) to make cards for not only the patients at the hospital, but for parents of newborns in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). Art supplies will be provided, but if you have any you would like to share, please feel free to bring them. We'll have catering from Chick-fil-A and some other seasonal snacks, so please make sure you RSVP using this link so we will know approximately how much food to order: Feel free to bring friends! 

If you can't make it to the meeting but would still like to make cards, you can drop your own handmade cards off in A&S 1-03! Just make sure that they are NOT in sealed envelopes, that you have personalized them with your name and a little about you (e.g., Dr. Jett, Assistant Professor of Psychology at Georgia College & State University), and that they are one of the following two general themes: 1) happy holidays (not specific religious holidays) or 2) general encouragement ("You've got this" or "You are capable, strong, and worthy"). There are kids from neonates to 18 years of age as well as parents of patients, so try to make sure that we aren't just focusing on the little ones for these cards as everyone could use a word of encouragement during tough times. 

If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to Dr. Jett ( or Sherree Clark-Metcalf (VP of Psi Chi and President of Psychology Club). Thanks in advance for your support!
