Student service efforts deserve commendation

The Elizabeth Peabody House would like to thank all of the students at MIT who participated in the donation of 240 Christmas presents to the children and youth of Somerville.

In addition, we would like to thank the MIT Public Service Center for organizing this very generous contribution. Many of the gifts went to needy families. The presents brought the children much joy!

One often hears that the young adults of today are self-centered and apathetic. This gesture by the students of MIT proves that this is not true. Many young adults in college are compassionate and dedicated to community service and the spirit of the holidays.

The efforts of the MIT Public Service Center and the students of MIT are greatly appreciated by the Elizabeth Peabody House. Thank you all very much.
