The Giving Tree 2022
On behalf of the Employee Engagement Committee – Community Outreach, we invite you to participate in the Giving Tree Campaign to benefit two families. Both families have been selected from Oaks of Righteousness. As prices continue to rise at the grocery store, gas station, utilities, etc., more families are needing assistance. With many of our peers retiring recently, many of whom generously donated to the Giving Tree every year, and welcoming lots of new faces on campus, this year is a great opportunity for us all to come together to help make a happier holiday season for others in our community. We have 78 gift tags that need to be filled, so any help you can give would be thoughtful.
The items requested are listed on the tags hung on the Giving Tree located in the Warrick Student Center. You may also give a cash donation to the cashier in the Warrick Student Center. You may place your wrapped package under the tree with the tag attached. We would like to collect the items by Wednesday, December 14th.
Donation Options: Select a tag off the Giving Tree, Cash donations can be dropped off at the Cashier’s window.
Also, mark your calendar for Jeans Day - Wear Red and/or Green on November 30th. Make a suggested $5 donation at the Cashier’s window and wear your jeans. Each dollar donated will go towards the purchase of gifts for our families for the Giving Tree. We raised $165.00 from Jeans Day!

This was one of our most popular fundraisers! It seems everyone had an opinion when it came to our furry and feathered friends. For the Humane Society, the Community Outreach Committee raised $396.00 with pet photo contest and $68.00 from jeans day. The funds went to the Humane Society General Fund.
This yearly effort focuses on the children from the local Head Start Program and their families.
Jeans day collected over $100.00. Jack Burns secured a $250.00 donation from Thrivent. Josh Myers gave a discounted rate for the food baskets.
This year we collected gifts and toys for 51 children (Head Start students and siblings combined) representing 22 families. Each family also received a complete Easter meal and household supplies.
Thank you to all our Committee members for the continued support!
