Donations at Pharmacy holiday party to go to local agencies

The University of Iowa College of Pharmacy will hold its holiday party for the college's faculty and staff from 5 to 8 p.m. Friday, Dec. 14, at the Saddlebrook Clubhouse, 102 Paddock Circle, in Iowa City. The event is sponsored by the college's staff council.

As in past years, donations will be accepted at the door. This year, donations will go to either the Nest of Johnson County or the Emergency Housing Project. The Nest is a program for encouraging young, at-risk mothers to get prenatal and postnatal care and education. The Emergency Housing Project provides work performance training, mental health and substance abuse counseling, and housing assistance to at-risk individuals in the Iowa City area.
