Holiday Sharing 2010
WE NEED YOU for the 19th Annual Holiday Sharing Program! Will you join us?
The Holiday Sharing Program pairs SU schools, colleges and departments with families in need. Families are identified by counselors at eight Syracuse city schools: Bellevue, Seymour, Dr. Weeks, Franklin, H.W. Smith, Delaware and Percy Hughes; as well as community groups, including the Vet Center, Hopps Memorial Church, 1st English Lutheran Church and Our Lady of Solace Church.
This program is purely voluntary. If your department elects to participate, you will be asked to collect gifts for each member of “your” family and food that will make up a holiday meal and help stock the family’s pantry. Occasionally, departments request to be matched with families from particular agencies or with specific age groups. We will make every attempt to accommodate these requests; however, our main goal is to assist all families in need.
This year’s family information will be distributed to participating departments in mid-November. Pickup and delivery of all donations will take place on the mornings of Wednesday, Dec. 15, and Thursday, Dec. 16.
If you are interested in participating in this program, we need you to provide the following information by Wednesday, Oct. 20:
• department name
• department address
• name of the department contact, including phone, fax and e-mail address
• the approximate number of people in the department actively participating
Please send this information via our easy new WEB FORM: http://its.syr.edu/kjpatten/holidaysharing/holidayform.cfm.
The organizational committee thanks you in advance for your participation in this most worthwhile program.
