USD to Host Holiday Welcome Table
The School of Medicine and School of Health Sciences are assisted by other USD organizations including Reading Council, Phi Delta Theta, USD Athletics and Aramark, in serving food and drinks, creating children’s crafts, taking pictures and helping clear tables. Charlie Coyote and Santa Claus will also be present for photos with fans.
Wendy Pederson, event organizer and graduate/education coordinator for the Department of Basic Biomedical Sciences, said they expect to serve 300-350 people. “People look forward to this event all year long,” she said. “This is a wonderful way for us to serve the community at a time of the year that promotes giving.”
The event was initiated in 2008 as a community service project by the university departments housed in the Lee Medical Building, but has evolved into a USD effort that is also a celebration of the relationship the university has with the community of Vermillion.
