The members of the Samford community have been generous in their giving during the holidays: responding to an employee’s request to help a local family who lost everything in a fire; participating in the Salvation Army’s Angel Tree project; building a Habitat for Humanity house for a deserving family; serving meals in area homeless shelters; and helping others through churches and other local ministries. The giving spirit is a hallmark of Samford University throughout the year, but especially during the holidays.


The world is better because of our "service to God, to family, to one another, and to the community."
