FSB- first floor

UCCFR is once again sponsoring a "Giving Tree" to support a family in the Mansfield area by purchasing items that they would otherwise not be able to afford during this holiday season. The family has seven children and they are celebrating Christmas this year.

The "Giving Tree" is set up on the first floor in FSB across from the Student Services/Advising Center. The tree contains a number of ornaments, which have the age and gender of a family member, as well as a requested item or two. Those of you who are interested, please take an ornament and sign your name and email address next to the corresponding number on the sign up sheet near the tree. These families would like their gifts wrapped, but if you are unable to wrap your gift, UCCFR can wrap it for you. It is very important that you return the gift with the ornament attached to the Student Services Center (FSB 123) by Friday, December 7th. It is very important that you attach the tag so that we know which child the present belongs to.

If you are low on time to shop this holiday season, you may also help support a family by donating money that will go to purchasing gifts from tags that are not taken or to gift cards for the families. Remember that if you don't think you could cover the whole cost of a gift, you can always split the cost with a friend or two. Any contribution big or small will be greatly appreciated by the families. If you have any questions at all, or happen to lose your tag, please contact Lindsay Westberg (

Thank you so much in advance for your assistance in supporting these families! Have a great holiday season, UCCFR
