Adopt-a-Kid Sign-Ups Going On This Week

All Dominican faculty, staff and students are invited and encouraged to participate in this year’s Adopt-a-Kid Program.  Buy 2 Christmas gifts for a child who might not otherwise receive any.  Here are the details:

Sign-up
November 19-22 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Lewis Alcove.

Gift Drop-off
The former Sisters’ Community Room (behind the Sisters’ Commons) from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on December 5-6 and December 9-10.

The cost per gift is $5-10 each, with each child receiving two gifts – one fun and one practical. For some of these children, this represents the only gift they will receive this holiday season.

You can contribute in to the Adopt-a-Kid Program in the following ways:

Sign up individually
Have your academic/administrative department consider adopting some children
Students, have your group adopt a few children as well

Adopt-a-Kid at Christmas is an important and valued initiative. As you take time to reflect on your blessings, this represents an opportunity to make someone else’s holiday season an enjoyable and memorable experience.  Your participation is greatly appreciated.
