2014 Project results:
We were able to help 31 families with food, gifts, a gift card to King Soopers, and books from Barnes and Noble. We raised $437 from cash donations to be used for the grocery store gift cards.
This was truly a team effort! A great big thank you to Athletics for their tremendous food drive and for donating all the food to the project. Barnes and Nobles generously donated all the books. We sincerely thank all the departments/individuals/clubs who sponsored the families and helped to make the season brighter. We also thank and appreciate everyone who donated money, purchased gifts (from the tags on the giving trees), and volunteered their time to help with the project. What a wonderful community of giving individuals!
The Holiday Service Project touches many lives. Here is a quote from one of our adopted families: “My family has moved six times in five years and transferred to four different colleges and we never received a welcome like the UCCS family has extended.”
