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 20 through December 1 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 is not enough funds to buy gifts for everyone. College staff shops December 11 - 18 using the donated funds. Students pick up the wrapped gifts on December 19, right before the campus' holiday break.
The Ivy Tech Richmond employee family will make sure your gift will make an impact this holiday season. We will send you an email letting you know how your gift was used. Thank you in advance for your consideration!
The needs are many. We have learned that all gifts are important; when we combine our giving (at whatever level), we learn that we really do change lives.
There are a lot of requests for hats, scarves and gloves as well as other clothing items for children this time of year.
Think of the joy these will bring to the children of Ivy Tech students.
There really is a Santa Claus! Your giving at this level will certainly touch the life of a child.
