Phi Theta Kappa Organizes Angel Trees
Phi Theta Kappa, the honor society at GHC, organized Angel Trees at Floyd and Cartersville campuses to collect gifts for children who might not otherwise have presents at Christmas. In Rome, students collected gifts for children ranging from toddlers to teenagers.
In Cartersville, PTK formed teams to get each child a variety of presents, including clothing toys, bicycles and more. The Cartersville tree had 120 angel tags – and not one was left on the tree. Rome also collected about 100 gifts.
Marietta's PTK group collected many toys and gift cards, which they delivered to the Cobb County YWCA Women's Shelter and transitional home.
The generosity of GHC’s faculty and staff is clear every year, and clearly reflects a personal and institutional philosophy of giving.

Toys and gifts await pick-up by the Salvation Army at the Cartersville County. The Salvation Army distributed the presents to Bartow County children.
