We invite you to be a part of the Villanova University “Spread the Spirit” service project. This year’s Christmas party for the North Light Community Center's children will be held on Sunday, December 10th from 1:30 – 4:00 in the Villanova Room (Connelly Center). The children and their families are brought by bus to campus for the party. 200 children and adults are expected at this event, so your assistance is greatly appreciated.
North Light Community Center has asked if we would could “adopt” 30 families this year. And we will again collect toys for the children from the Church of New Hope and Faith in North Philadelphia. Clearly there is a tremendous need right in our own back yard, and without the kindness, generosity, and support from the Villanova community, these families would go without this holiday season.
If a department, organization, Residence Hall or group chooses to adopt a family, a fun suggestion is to create a "Giving Tree" in your office and each person could select a gift for the adopted family from the tree. One person could organize the gift list to ensure all gifts have been collected!
This year there are many opportunities to help!
- Sponsor a child (or children) for the party
- Adopt a Family - as an individual or a department or a group sponsor a famly of 2 - 6
- Donate money - Help Sponsor the party!
Any departments wishing to make donations to help offset some of the costs associated with the party or for gifts can do so through an internal budget transfer
- Donate generic toys
- Help set up, attend or clean up at the party!
- Cash Donations - A christmas Elf will purchase a gift in your name
TOY DROP OFF DONATION BOXES ARE IN GAREY HALL- ALUMNI LOBBY, and CORR HALL-FSL OFFICE
Any questions, concerns or comments, please contact Joan Hawley, at email@example.com, or Marybeth Avioli, 95327, Chairpersons for the Villanova University Spread the Spirit Project.
