Each year the Staff Council works with Salvation Army’s Angel Tree program to adopt one or two families to help provide for their needs during the Christmas season.
For the 2021 season, a total of $1736 dollars in cash donations were received which were used to shop for gifts for 9 children, and buy things for the family like grocery, gas, and movie gift cards. There were a collective amount of 250 presents bought and donated and wrapped!
Adam McLachlan, Nick Havranek, Jenn Eber, Christine Sprunger, Judy Stearns, and Cheryl Simpkins delivered gifts on Friday Dec 17th to the families. The families were so thankful and appreciative of how wonderful we made their holiday. We couldn't have done any of this without the generosity of Ball State Employees who donated to this project in some way. Big kudos to the Hospitality Chair Christine Sprunger for organizing this project, and for the hospitality committee, and the rest of the council who shopped and wrapped all the gifts.
