The Giving Tree
Nov. 9 - Dec. 9, 2009
About the Giving Tree Project
What is it?
The Giving Tree Project is Brown University's annual holiday gift drive, sponsored by the Third World Center.
How does it work and how can you be a part of it?
1) Pick up an ornament from a Giving Tree at one of the eight locations around campus. (TWC, SciLi, the Rock, Hillel, Brown Office Building, University Hall 2nd floor, Sarah Doyle Women's Center). On the back of the ornament is a gift item for a child in need.
2) Purchase the gift and wrap it. Make sure to attach the ornament to the gift so that we know what gift type it is.
3) Return the gift to the collection box in front of the tree
The Third World Center will donate the gift to the childrens' gift program of a community organization, including the following:
- RI Liberian Community Association
- Hmong United Association
- Socioeconomic Development Center for Southeast Asians
- Urban League
- Providence Community Action Elmwood Center
- Center for Hispanic Policy and Advocacy (CHisPA)
- John Hope
When does it end?
December 9th. THAT IS THE LAST DAY. So please do your drop-offs before that date.
That's all it takes to make this a memorable holiday season for a child! We will be collecting gifts until early December and donating them to the children of the following organizations around Providence:
Your generosity is greatly appreciated! We're hoping to collect several hundred gifts, so don't wait; buy a gift for a child TODAY, and then spread the word to all your friends!
