VSU students deliver smiles

Steptember19, 2006

Valdosta - Smiles are contagious, or at least that's what a group of Valdosta State University students hope.

Students from the Prospectives on Leadership class at the college began their smile for a while initiative.  The students got local retailers to donate almost 4 hundred stuffed animals that will be delivered to kids at South Georgia Medical Center's Youth Center.

They hope that community members will follow their lead and do something to make the nearly 50 sick kids a night who pass through Medical Center smile. 
"We are trying to get people involved so they can take the initiative and this just won't be a semester long project. People will go out and get stuffed animals donated not just around holiday times but the whole year," said Larry Harris, VSU student.

The students will return September 22, October 13, and October 15 to deliver the last of the donated animals to the children.
