Campus programs offer options for holiday giving

Faculty and staff members have an opportunity to get into the holiday spirit by taking part in programs aimed at enhancing the holidays for the less fortunate.

Charitable programs taking place on campus include:

• The Student Association 15th Annual Holiday Drive encourages campus departments or individuals to adopt a family for the holidays. To take part, call 777-6503.

• The Residential Hands-to-Heart Holiday Project provides gift baskets to children in the Binghamton area. Those wishing to take part in the program are asked to contact Maureen Regan at 677-4455 by Nov. 19 for a gift basket. Gift baskets then can be filled with toys, clothes or school supplies and returned to collection sites for distribution.

• Toys for Tots. Starting on Nov. 29, Parking Services will be setting up collection barrels at locations providing the campus community with a convenient way to donate to Toys for Tots this season.

• Holiday Dinner. Binghamton’s C3 student interns are collecting monetary and non-perishable donations for a dinner hosted by the interns and the Broome County Homeless Coalition from noon to 2 p.m. on Dec. 9. at the Trinity Memorial Church in Binghamton. Monetary donations can be left with the Division of Social Work office in SEHD. Non-perishable food items can be left in the Commons in AB-229. For more information, call 777-5999.
