Give to the Holiday Gift Project

Make it a Happy Holiday for Everyone!

Please join us for CWU’s 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. We have more than 375 community youth who could use some extra help this season.

The gift drive began on November 1 and will conclude in mid-December, 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.
