Ambassadors get in to the Spirit of the Season

The Mercyhurst College Ambassador Club on Dec. 15 delivered more than 70 gifts to the children at the Mercy Center for Women. 

This year, the club adopted all 17 of the children staying at the Mercy Center for Women. The ambassadors, students seeking to become club members, and five members of the admissions office staff assembled a huge pile of gifts. 

In addition to the gifts, the club raised more than $100. The money will be donated to the Mercy Center for Women in memory of Sister Kathleen Marie Leap, the director of the Mercy Institute in Erie who died earlier this year.

The Ambassadors Club is a group of carefully selected and motivated students who lead prospective students on campus tours, serve as guides to campus visitors, and serve as ushers at special campus events.
