HAVOC Giving Tree
HAVOC GivingTree
HAVOC is presenting its annual holiday event, The Giving Tree. Beginning December 3, there will be trees in both Cafe Opus and Beinecke. These trees will have ornaments, and each of these ornaments details a gift request from a needy family in the greater Utica area. (i.e. gloves and hat for a 6-year-old girl, or crayons and coloring books for an 8-year-old boy, etc.) Next to each of these trees will be a box for the gifts. Please wrap the gifts that you supply and also ATTACH THE ORNAMENT, so that we know what is inside and who to bring it to! The deadline for the gifts is December 11, so that we have adequate time to deliver the gifts. If you do take an ornament, please remember: that gift is now your responsibility. You may take as many or as few ornaments as you like, but if you take an ornament, please follow through with the gift. Contact kwilliam@hamilton.edu with questions. More ...
