CPAC project a success

Parachute, the holiday project sponsored by the classified personnel advisory committee (CPAC), was a "tremendous success," says Judi Webb, CPAC chair. Now in its ninth year, the fund-raiser provided gifts for more than 90 children in the Butler County area.

"We had the opportunity to talk to volunteers who shared stories about the overwhelming gratitude of the children," Webb said. "We were told that several children even slept with their wrapping paper under their pillows. It was very emotional.

"We’d like to thank the entire university community for their contributions, from wrapping and shopping, to donations and delivering gifts. This project wouldn’t have been as successful without the generosity and caring of everyone involved," she said.
