Angel Tree Now on Display in Campus Center

Posted on November 29th, 2011 by

The Angel Tree, a holiday tradition at Gustavus Adolphus College that assists financially strapped families in St. Peter, is now on display on the upper level of the C. Charles Jackson Campus Center.

Ornaments on the Angel Tree contain gift requests for children of families in the St. Peter area that are struggling with their finances and cannot purchase holiday gifts for their children. Gustavus students and employees are asked to remove the ornaments from the tree, purchase gifts, and return them to the Peer Assistants office by Dec. 12 so they can be distributed to the families.

Sponsored by the Peer Assistants and the Theatre and Dance Scene Shop, the Angel Tree program provided gifts for approximately 230 children last holiday season. Monetary donations are also helpful for purchasing gifts for requests that are not returned. Donations can be made in the Peer Assistants office or the Theatre and Dance Scene Shop.

This is the 14th year of the Angel Tree program, which was started by former Peer Assistant Kate Reuer ’99.
