Alpha Psi donates money collected from 'Eight' show to Salvation Army

The Salvation Army in Lawrence received a $135 gift from Alpha Psi Omega.

The members of the honorary theater fraternity took donations during their show "The Eight: Reindeer Monologues," which was performed Dec. 2, Friday and Saturday.

Junior Allie Millikan said the organization originally was going to use the money to purchase gifts for children listed on Baker University's Angel Tree. She said because all of the angels were gone from the tree, they decided instead to donate the money directly to the Salvation Army, which sponsors to Angel Tree.

"We were all really excited about it," she said. "We didn't know how it would go because we've never asked for donations before."
