Student groups work to help area children during the holidays

RELEASED: Nov. 24, 2009

Giving TreeEAU CLAIRE — The Campus Ambassadors at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, along with the Salvation Army, are sponsoring a Giving Tree this holiday season to help children in need.

The Giving Tree is located outside of Room 112 of Schofield Hall. Each ornament, or Angel Tag, on the Giving Tree describes a gift that a child wants for the holidays. The tags also include the child's gender and age.

Participants can select an ornament from the giving tree between Nov. 21 and Dec. 10. They are asked to place an unwrapped gift with the original Angel Tag beneath the Giving Tree between Dec. 7 and Dec. 11. The gift — to cost between $15 and $25 — should be placed under the tree no later than 3 p.m. Dec. 11.

By purchasing a gift, people will help provide presents under the tree for a family in need.
