On your feet: Theta Epsilon needs socks!

Theta Epsilon needs socks! Our chapter is collecting new, unused pairs of socks for our Warm Soles Sock Drive. The socks will be donated to the homeless community of Central Florida. You are more than welcome to bring your donations to any of our events, as well as drop them off at the College of Nursing. Our donation box is located on the 3rd floor at the main desk.


Donations that are collected will be distributed throughout the local homeless community. 


Get on your feet with Theta Epsilon and help us make a difference!
