Through the Eyes of a Child is an annual event sponsored by Beta Theta Pi in which 70 Cleveland children from the local St. Francis and St. Thomas Aquinas elementary schools visit JCU’s campus for a few hours of holiday fun and activities. This year’s event will be held on Saturday, December 1, from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., and activities will include a visit with Santa, arts and crafts, time in the IM gym, and lunch in the dining hall. This is a great event for anyone who is looking for a fun and rewarding service project for the holiday season!
Buddies are paired with a child and are asked to spend up to $20 to purchase and wrap a gift for their little buddy. On the day of the event, Buddies will share lunch and participate in the various games and activities, visit Santa, and then give the child their gift.
** Please note that if you commit to being a buddy, you are expected to stay for the duration of the event until 2:30 p.m. or when your child is picked up by their parent or guardian. If you are only able to come for a portion of that time, please consider being an event helper instead. We’d still love your help!
