Waubonsee Giving Tree
November
Student Center

Each fall we partner with Fox Valley United Way to sponsor children over the winter holidays. As soon as United Way had the information available, we will put a holiday tree in the Student Center with tags for children who are in need over the holidays. You can sponsor a child by yourself, as a club or department, with your friends, etc. Be on the lookout!

Angel Tree Packing (Salvation Army)
Tuesday, Dec. 5, 12:30 - 4:30 p.m.
Wednesday, Dec. 6, 9:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.

Thousands of people donate to the Salvation Army Angel Tree program each fall/winter. Before families can pick up the gifts that have been donated to their families, everything has to be sorted and bagged. This is a massive undertaking for each local Salvation Army. Each year, we head over to their warehouse to assist with the sorting, bagging, and more!
Register here.
