University of Oregon students are reaching out to the east coast, hoping to help students recover from the traumatic events at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte.
Members of the Alpha Omega Chapter of Pi Kappa Phi have taken what was supposed to be an effort to help people on their campus and turned it into a coast-to-coast show of compassion by making hundreds of “grounding kits” to help people affected by the recent events at UNC-Charlotte.
“To help people that suffer from anxiety or go through PTSD,” said Pi Kappa Phi member Nico Vargas. “Like, certain events in their life. They have to deal with that stuff, so we thought this is some way we can make a direct impact with those here on campus so we went for it and this is where we are now.”
