Community Giving Tree Provides Gifts for 107 Children

Thanks to the generosity of the university community, the 2010 USF Community Giving Tree, sponsored by Human Resources, was a resounding success. Over the weeks before the holiday, mountains of toys and gift items lined hallways and offices awaiting delivery to deserving children.

 

The initiative sponsored 107 children this year, putting smiles on faces and making holiday wishes come true. Every child who submitted a wish list received at least two gifts off their list, including video games, mp3 players, movies, and an abundance of toys, clothes and dolls. A few lucky children even received bikes this year!

 

The Human Resources staff has received a lot of positive feedback from the parents of the impacted children. It was truly a university-wide effort and we thank everyone who gave so generously and worked hard to make this year’s USF Community Giving Tree a success.
