“Empathy can help bring us together as a student body,” junior and Chimes member Courtenay Willcox said. “When you empathize with someone, it helps you get to know them better and brings you closer.”

All the money raised from the events of the week will benefit the St. Louis Crisis Nursery, which aims to provide children from birth to 12 years of age who are going through emergency or crisis situations with a place to stay.
