WSC "Festival of Trees" To Help Buy Gifts
WAYNE, Neb. (Dec. 1, 2009) -The Wayne State College Student Senate and Pi Gamma Mu Social Sciences Honor Society will co-sponsor the 2009 Festival of Trees from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. and from 6 to 8 p.m. Dec. 7-9 in the WSC Student Center atrium.
"Imagine a child's holiday season without a gift. For many northeast Nebraska families, this bleak situation is facing them during what should be a joyous time,'' said Dr. Randy Bertolas, organizer of the event and professor at WSC. "Please help put a toy in the hands of a needy child this holiday season."
The atrium of the campus Student Center will be filled with "themed" holiday trees sponsored by WSC clubs, organizations, residence halls, faculty, staff and offices.
WSC organizations will set out labeled, decorated trees in the WSC Student Center atrium during these three days. Campus and community members are invited to view the trees and to vote for your favorite ones via cash donation buckets set up during the designated hours.
All donations will go toward buying gifts for needy children in Wayne County. This activity is being coordinated with the Wayne Health and Human Services Office.
