Annual CWU Holiday Gift Project Begins

During the month of November, Central Washington University will once again host the Annual Holiday Gift Project, which serves hundreds of underserved children in Kittitas County.

Student, staff, and faculty contribute to the campus-wide effort, which allows participants to make personal and meaningful gifts directly to individual children by choosing items from the child’s own gift list. Last year, the gift project collected gifts for more than 300 children.

The gift drive begins November 2 and concludes November 28, when all gifts need to be delivered to the Office of the President at 314 Barge Hall on the CWU campus. Since some requests are “needs” as much as “wants,” participants are urged to choose both a practical as well as a fun gift if possible.

The CWU Holiday Gift Project supports CWU’s Early Childhood Education Center, CWU’s Operation E.L.F., Kittitas County Bright Beginnings, and the Department of Children and Family Services.
