Nov. 16, 2007  Communique

Greetings Students, Staff & Faculty

The University of Colorado at Colorado Springs’ Holiday Service Project for 2007 is now underway.  This project is an opportunity for our campus to provide extra assistance to UCCS’s student, faculty and staff community during the holidays.  There are several ways you may help.

Adopt-a-Family – Departments, individuals or clubs may “adopt” a family.  We provide you with your family’s wish list so you may purchase the gifts they really want.

Holidrop Boxes – These decorated boxes will be located in each building on campus beginning November 16th.  Donations of new toys, unexpired canned/dry food or paper/household products are requested.  We hope to provide the “fixings” for a holiday dinner for each participating family.

Giving Trees – Our Brightly decorated trees will be in the University Center Lobby, Bookstore, University Hall, Main Hall, Dwire Hall and Columbine Hall on November 16th.  Individuals may take a gift tag and purchase a smaller gift that the parent, child or whole family can enjoy.  See contacts and locations for assistance.

$$Cash/Check Donations – Any size donation is appreciated.  Cash donation acrylic boxes will be located in the following areas beginning November 16th.The Bursar’s Office, Bookstore, Front (Information Desk)  Desk in University Center, Beth-El in University Hall, Parking Front Desk, Financial Aid, IT Help Desk in El Pomar Center, Overlook in University Hall, LAS, Library, Dwire at the Coffee Cart and Monarch Campus Housing Front Desk. The cash will be used to purchase gift cards, additional food and gift items. Checks can be made payable to Holiday Service Project.
