When the Salt Lake Community College chapter of Delta Epsilon Chi (DEX) gathered to discuss our annual service project, it was obvious this year needed to be special. With the economy in its recent state, everyone is asking for help. We wanted to do something different, something creative. We decided to team up with Build-a-Bear and Shriners Hospital for Children to do something for some of the less fortunate children in Salt Lake City. Shriners Hospital is such an amazing part of our community. December 5th at 5:30 p.m. we gathered at Fashion Place Mall to make bears together. The goal was to build stuffed animals for 75 children at Shriners Hospital. We killed that and made 174.
