Still Needed: Cookies and Gifts

Pledged: 45 Dozen Cookies, Need 100 Dozen

We are getting closer to our goal of 100 dozen cookies. These treats will bring holiday cheer to four local nonprofits: the Center for the Homeless, Hope Ministries, St. Margaret’s House, and Youth Service Bureau/Safe Station. Please consider making a pledge! Cookies do not have to be Christmas-themed.

EASY COOKIE DROP OFF: Committee members will be waiting outside the Eck Visitors Center to receive your cookies (where the buses pull up) on the morning of Wednesday, December 12th. Drivers can pull up between 7:45 AM – 8:15 AM and make a speedy cookie drop-off. In addition, all are welcome to join volunteers at 5:00 PM at the Eck Center to assemble trays of treats.

Please email with the number of cookies you plan to bake or if you’d like to help assemble trays.

Still More Gifts to Buy for Seniors         

University Relations has committed to sponsor 35 senior citizens as part of the “Elves for Elders” program—a sizable part of the 400 people REAL Services is hoping to assist this Christmas. Each client has 3 – 5 tags labeled with wish list items from nightgowns to bed sheets. There are still approximately 40 out of 125 tags that have yet to be selected. We appreciate your consideration in helping with this UR-Division-wide service effort. Gift collection will continue until noon on Monday, December 10th.

If you have questions, please contact the representative in your area. Pick up a tag at the following locations:

405 Main Building, Christmas tree in kitchen – Roberta White
5th Floor Grace, front desk/ reception  – Rachel Hughes or Carol Bradley
10th Floor Grace, table near Candace’s desk  – Sharon Rankert
11th Floor Grace, Angel’s desk  – Angel Hess
Eck Center, Christmas tree in lobby – Katie Rutledge
ESC, Christmas tree in café – Kris Machalleck, Beth Ferlic, Huyen Lee

Thank you to gift delivery volunteers!

Thank you so much to the UR colleagues who volunteered to deliver gifts for REAL Services. Sixteen volunteers stepped forward to drive and our group supplied at least one volunteer for each of the 5 counties supported by REAL Services.
