The Angel Tree Project’s committee members announce this year’s effort:
The Angel Tree Project of 2010, sponsored by the Staff Senate Service Committee, was very successful and we were able to help four deserving families with clothing, toys, grocery and drug store gift cards. Their holidays were a little brighter, thanks to the many UNCG employees who contributed.
We would like to help more families this year and have the names of a number of UNCG employees who could use some assistance. We will have more detailed information regarding clothing sizes and types of toys/books the kids like in the next week or two, but we know there will be a great need for grocery store gift cards, based on some of the stories that have been shared with the Staff Senate Service Committee. We hope to help at least four families and some single individuals who are struggling.….with your generous support, we will have another successful Angel Tree.
All gifts/donations/gift cards will need to be turned in by December 15th , which isn’t that far away; hopefully, you can keep the Angel Tree in mind while you are shopping over the next week or two and pick up gift cards to grocery stores, Walgreens, WalMart, Target, etc. They will be put to excellent use. More information will be sent out the first week in December via your Staff Senate liaison and HR liaisons regarding specific “wish list” items.
Thank you all and we look forward to helping those in need in our UNCG Community.
