The Palm Coast Flagler County Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Inc. hosted a “College Trunk Party” for its 2016 scholarship recipients on June 4 at the Hilton Garden Inn at Town Center in Palm Coast.
Trunks for the students were filled with a wide assortment of items that would be needed by anyone leaving home to live in a college dormitory room. Items donated included bedding, batteries, irons, mops and toiletries.
The Palm Coast Deltas decided to extend their gifts of scholarships to donations of necessities for first-year college students. Each student received a trunk and donated items from the sorority.
