CRESTVIEW — The Beta Sigma Phi City Council — comprising sorority chapters Zeta Delta, Preceptor Delta, Xi Psi and Epsilon Master — has donated more than 300 items to Silvercrest Manor.

The supplies — including toiletries, books, blankets, puzzles, candy and socks — will benefit the convalescent and nursing home's 60 patients, said Kimberly Kellogg, the Crestview facility's activities director.

"There was a ton of stuff, an overabundance," she said.

The Epsilon Master chapter contributes to the community's needs year-round, member Katherine Evans said.

In addition to snacks for their March meeting, sorority members toted multiple shopping bags of nonperishable food. They donated canned goods for causes including Samaritan House, First Presbyterian Church’s soup kitchen and Crestview Manor, a senior assisted living facility.
