The Giving Tree Holiday Project

The holiday season can be a very stressful time for families due to increased financial burdens and high expectations. Student Services is offering an opportunity to reduce such burdens for the University Schools community.

Student Services is organizing the 5th Annual Giving Tree this holiday season to assist University families in need of support.

For this project, families will create profiles for each child providing age, gender, sizes for clothing and shoes, interests, needs and wants. Our goal is to simply provide a bit of extra joy during the holiday season.

Our project anonymously links those who want to contribute with children who would otherwise receive few, if any, gifts for the holidays. This is an opportunity for families needing extra support as well as families wanting to help others and give back to the University community.

If your family wants to help, parents/guardians can sign up and select a tag off the Giving Tree located in Student Services in the main building or at the main office in the middle school beginning November 16. Please return gifts unwrapped to Student Services in the main building by December 12. We appreciate wrapping paper donations.

If you would like to register your family to receive holiday support, you may download the application or stop by the main office or Student Services to pick up an application in either building. Applications will be available beginning October 29. Completed applications are due to Student Services by November 15.

If you would like to help but do not want to participate in shopping, we are also accepting donations. These donations can be for a certain individual or given toward a general fund (to help make purchases for participating children). We appreciate wrapping paper donations.

If you have any additional questions, please call Daniel Lee, middle school counselor at (970) 506.6800 or Vanessa Njos, main building middle school counselor at (970) 576.3905.
