student_tree_1213

The Angel Trees, from which individuals pick a tag and purchase a gift item for a local child in need, have once again appeared throughout campus. All members of the Salve Regina community are invited to participate in the Angel Tree program.

Angel Trees are located in McAuley Hall, Miley Hall, the O’Hare Academic Center, the Rodgers Recreation Center, Wakehurst and the Center for Adult Education in Warwick. Gifts will benefit children in need through Child & Family, the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Community Center and the Salvation Army.

Each tag lists a child’s name, age and wish. Donors are asked to choose a tag from the tree, purchase a gift and return it in a gift bag or unwrapped to the Office of Community Service in McAuley Hall, Room 209-210 by noon Wednesday, Dec. 18. Please make sure to attach the label to the gift.

In addition to the Angel Trees, a baby shelf has been added to the McAuley lobby and the Center for Adult Education. All baby supplies donated will be distributed to the Ronald McDonald House in Providence.

This is the 10th year that Salve Regina is participating in the Angel Tree program. For more information, contact the Office of Community Service at 401-341-2440 or community.services@salve.edu.
