The giving spirit throughout the Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology community was once again exhibited in the $1,565.92 donated to the Terre Haute Tribune-Star's Christmas Basket Fund.  The donation was collected in a campus fund-raising drive conducted by members of Rose-Hulman's Cecil T. Lobo student chapter of the American Society of Civil Engineers. Another $135.05 was donated to the Bikes For Tykes project.

The annual donation helps the Christmas Basket Fund provide a bountiful holiday meal to 500 local families for this Christmas season. The baskets will be distributed on Christmas Eve.

Since 1989, ASCE has helped the campus community donate $41,542.18 for the basket fund.

"The generosity of the Rose-Hulman community is a blessing," stated Tribune-Star Editor Max Jones, who accepted the check from ASCE officers.
