Once every semester
we host this fun mix of service and social activities. We gather on a
Saturday night in a lounge in one of the residence halls on campus to make cards
for overseas soldiers and sick children, and make sandwiches for the Trenton
Area Soup Kitchen. It is a great way to do service and make some new
Circle K friends!

This yearly walk
held by the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of NJ is just one of the ways we help

the end of the walk. The walk helps to raise valuable funds for awareness
and research about lymphoma and leukemia.
