Richmond-Holiday Giving Tree
'Tis the Season!
WOW! We have a generous donor who will match every $1 you contribute toward this project! Experience the joy of giving by providing a hand up for our students and your gift will truly make an impact!
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). This is how it works:
Students register their children on November 25 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 9 - 13 using the donated funds. Students pick up the gifts on December 19, 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. If funds are available, we provide food-only gift cards so that a holiday meal can be enjoyed by the family.
The Ivy Tech Richmond employee family will make sure your gift will make an impact this holiday season.
