Another service opportunity...

The Graduate Society of Nutritional Sciences (GSNS) has decided to begin collecting gifts for Columbus' LifeCare Alliance! They are in need of small gifts for their senior citizens, who are mainly low-income men and women who rarely get out of their homes. In room 325 there is a flyer and a list (for you to take home) of possible gift ideas. These gifts need to be wrapped and returned to room 325 by December 9th. This is an easy way to put a huge smile on someone's face this holiday season. Thanks you for your help!

Wanted: gift wrappers

Ashley Harris is coordinating a gift-wrapping service project. Two people are needed per shift. The available dates are going fast so please let her know specific dates that could work for you or at least general times (weekend before exams, after exams, etc). Transportation is available for those who need it.

This is a simple way (they donate all materials) for us to raise money for charity. Contact Ashley ( for more information.

Trip to Abbott Nutrition

Amy and Sagar are working out the details for our first GSNS career development trip to Abbott Nutrition, for those that may be interested in an industry position after graduation. Check out their website for more company info.

We're planning to attend in the afternoon (maybe around 2:00 pm) either on:

Friday, 12/12 or
Monday, 12/15

Because of security rules at Abbott, we will need to give them a list of the people planning to attend. Note: they won't let you in unless we tell them you're coming, so we really need to know if you're planning to attend.

Please email Amy Headings (headings.226) or Sagar (Thakkar.22) by this Saturday 11/29 if you are thinking about attending.
