Spread Christmas cheer to families in need


This archived article was written by: Emma Rowley

One of the best parts of Christmas is giving gifts. This year, you have the perfect opportunity to give some Christmas cheer by choosing an Angel from the Angel Tree. The Angel Tree is across from the cafeteria that is covered in name tags with a child’s Christmas wish. Many of these children on the tree will not have a Christmas otherwise. If you are still interested in giving, there is still time left.
The directions are simple. Take an angel tag from the tree and sign the sign out sheet right next to the tree. On the sheet, put your name, the number printed on the angel tag and your phone number.
Once you have purchased the gift, return the gift unwrapped to the SUN Center. The SUN Center is located in Room 213 in the Jennifer Leavitt Student Center. You need to return the angel tag with the gift you purchased on or before Tuesday Dec. 10 by 4:30 p.m.
Today is Dec. 5, you still have five days to make a child’s Christmas. “This is something that the children really need. Some of these kids will have no Christmas without our help.” says Vicki Kulow, SUN Center Vista Volunteer and head of the Angel Tree project. The tree still has many names on it. Head on over before finals and pick up a tag and do as all the Angel Tree flyers say: “Give yourself a great big hug for helping a child in our area have a Merry Christmas!”
