The University at Buffalo chapter of Lambda Kappa Sigma (LKS) created homemade Valentine's Day cards for pediatric patients at Oishei Children's Hospital in Buffalo, NY.


Students weren't deterred by the pandemic--they worked with each other over Zoom to make dozens of colorful greetings.

"Children, especially, are largely impacted by the pandemic and are not able to have the same social experiences that they did prior to our 'new normal'," says Brandon Tu, PharmD '23, and LKS Service Chair.

"One of the core values for LKS is service," he continues. "Giving back to our community is an important aspect of our organization. If anyone needs a helping hand, LKS will be there to show their support!"
