The Spirit of the Giving Tree

has returned!
 
This event is a wonderful opportunity for the WPI community to make the holidays a little brighter for the children of Worcester.
This year’s Spirit of the Giving Tree will benefit children from the Friendly House.
 

This year, the Giving Tree is entirely virtual.

To adopt a child, please visit: www.roonga.com/wpigivingtree
and then browse the profiles. 
Profiles are complete with some basic information about the child and requests and preference they may have.
 
Once you have chosen which child you would like to adopt this holiday season, you can then create an account to complete the process.
Child profiles will be available today through December 8th at 11:59pm.
 
Gifts should be mailed to Friendly House directly using the address below 
no later than December 9th to ensure they arrive in time.
 
Friendly House
Attn: Danielle Delgado c/o Child’s Name

All faculty, staff and students are invited, to “adopt” a child this holiday season.
You can sponsor a child as an individual, organization, department, group, floor or chapter. 
 
Every person can make a difference.
 
Thank you to all members of the WPI community for your tremendous support!
 
Please contact Mackenzie Lipman, Assistant Director of Student Activities mlipman@wpi.edu/ x5961 with any questions.
 
A reminder for staff with students looking for Community Service Work Study Hours:
Adopting a child for the Giving Tree does not count for community service hours.
