Various Campus Sites
Angels’ Wings is a holiday gift-giving program created to
provide gifts for more than 2,000 children, elderly, and physically/mentally
challenged people in the Indiana area. The program is coordinated at IUP by
the Office of Service Learning.
Tags can be picked up in several campus buildings November
18–22, 2019—just look for the evergreen tree and select a tag! By selecting a
tag from the angel tree, you can help provide holiday gifts to children or
adults in our community who otherwise wouldn’t receive one. Often, the adults
who receive the gifts are disabled, veterans, or elderly.
The tag will indicate the age and gender of the person, as well
as ideas of the gifts that have been wished for. While recipients were asked to
list what they’d like as gifts, you aren’t required to get all of the gift
ideas. The program’s main goal is to make sure that all recipients have at
least one present to open for the holidays.
Unwrapped gifts with the tag secured to the gift with tape can
be dropped off at the HUB Atrium at the Angel Tree table from 11:00 a.m. until
4:00 p.m. on December 2 and 3, 2019. Gifts can also
be dropped off in Pratt Hall 302 from 8:00 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. on December 2,
and from 8:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m. on December 3.
