NDSU community helps make Giving Tree program a success

Forty-eight children received holiday gifts thanks to NDSU’s involvement in the Giving Tree program. Sponsored by the Diversity Center, Volunteer Network, Multicultural Student Services, International Programs and the Student Activities Office, the Giving Tree seeks to assist individuals within the community who need a little extra support during the holiday season.

NDSU students were asked to submit information detailing their children's holiday needs. Nominations for individuals within the campus community also were accepted to try to reach as many individuals as possible.

An ornament was created for each child and was hung on a tree in the Memorial Union. Staff, students, faculty and others responded swiftly and generously. Each child, represented by an ornament, received a gift especially for him or her.

“We hope that this helped alleviate some of the strain felt by parents during the holiday season,” said Angela Mathers, graduate assistant for the Office of Equity, Diversity and Global Outreach. “The success of this program ensures that our campus community is eager to assist one another in times of need. We look forward to future collaboration seeking to support our fellow NDSU community members.”
