Current Mercy College of Ohio Radiologic Technology students recently provided 283 gifts for Lucas County Children’s Services for Christmas. The annual service project asks students to buy gifts for children, age infant to teen. Radiology faculty and others connected to the program at Mercy College also donated gifts. Each year the group counts this as their Christmas gathering, starting the gift wrapping frenzy with a pot luck luncheon. A spirit of generosity as the season begins is strong in the hearts of the Rad Tech students!
