Consider Giving to the Annual Holiday Gift Project, Deadline is December 13

There’s still time to help make it a happy holiday season for everyone!

Gifts are still being accepted for CWU’s annual Holiday Gift Project, which serves hundreds of underserved children in Kittitas County.

Student, staff, and faculty can contribute to the effort, which allows participants to make personal and meaningful gifts directly to individual children by choosing items from the child’s own gift list. We still have more than 75 community youth who could use some extra help this season.

The gift drive will conclude on December 13 at 5 p.m., 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.

For those who want to participate but don’t have time to shop, CWU’s elves accept cash donations and do the shopping.

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.
