The Office of Student Life is once again sponsoring the Salvation Army Angel Tree program. They are looking for any member of the University of Charleston Community willing to adopt a child.
This week, they will be picking out “Angels” for the program. If you are interested in adopting a child for the holidays, please contact Megan Sparrow. You are more than welcome to adopt multiple children. All items donated will be due to the Office of Student Life by Friday, December 6 by 3:00 p.m.
Last year we were able to adopt 27 children. Hopefully this year, we will be able to adopt more with your support of bringing a little holiday cheer to these deserving children.
