During this day of giving, please join the Ivy Tech Richmond employee family in helping the children of Ivy Tech students have a wonderful Christmas.
Ivy Tech students sometimes cannot afford basic necessities, let alone Christmas gifts for their child(ren). An annual tradition for the Ivy Tech Richmond campus is supporting our students by accepting donations of cash or gifts for Christmas presents for their child(ren).
Students register their children starting on November 19 through November 30 at the Richmond campus. They provide the ages of their children (up to 18), clothing sizes and wish lists. We hang an ornament on the tree representing the children and their wish list. The tree is always full and there are times we have to turn students away because there are not enough funds to buy gifts for everyone. College staff shop between December 10 - 16 using the donated funds. Students pick up the gifts on December 17, right before the campus' holiday break. The gifts are unwrapped but put in large bags for the parents/caregivers and wrapping paper is given as we have it available.
The Ivy Tech Richmond employee family will make sure your gift will make an impact this holiday season.
We know that all gifts are important! When we combine our giving, at whatever level, we know that we can change lives.
This gift can provide items such as hats, scarves, and coats that many children do not have, or do not have in the proper sizes.
Your donation at this level will help ensure a child has an experience of joy as they open some items on their wish/needs list.
At this level, you can be a living Santa, providing joy to many in a family.
A gift at this level will help us provide gifts for some of our larger student families. The joy will be so immense!
