It is better to give than receive.

Just ask the Ohio University Southern ACTION Psychology Club.

After flood waters left hundreds homeless in Lick Creek, W.Va., the club responded by making an appeal to all Ohio University Southern students and families to lend a helping hand to those hurt by the natural disaster.

Countless containers of clothing and shoes were collected to ensure necessary physical comfort of the Lick Creek flood victims.

Moreover, a donation has been made by a local photographer in hopes of offering future mementos to ease the emotional pain of losing important family memories that were washed away by the flood waters.

To ease hunger during the winter season, the executive committee, advisors, and members of the club collected food from seven area retail food stores:

Bartram and Son, Lambert's Market, Tipton's Mini Mart, South Point Food Fair, South Point Foodland, Forth's Foodfair, and Midtown Foodland.

Ohio University Southern housed collection points throughout the campus.

The boxes to collect the food were donated by B & C Tool and the food was delivered to the Ironton City Mission.
