Christmas for Kids

We Serve U invites the Wright State community to participate in the annual Christmas for Kids gift drive to provide a happy holiday for children in need.

We work directly with Greene County Children's Service and Toys for Tots to help make the holiday a time of joy and celebration.

Two ways you can help create holiday magic:

  1. Provide a new, unwrapped gift or toy for children 17 years old or younger.  We Serve U and the Interfraternity Council are working together to help Toys for Tots.  Drop off your donation(s) in a Toys for Tots bin located in Student Activities Office (019 Student Union); Dunbar Library (first floor); WSRI Bldg lobby; Women's Center (148 Millett);  Veteran & Military Center (131 Allyn);  Athletics Office (Nutter Center); Institutional Research & Analytics (350 UH).  Donation bins will be in place until Dec. 6th.  Toys for Tots will distribute the toys as Christmas gifts to less fortunate children in our area.
     
  2. Adopt a child/children/family - You and/or your office, organization or family can choose to "adopt" a family for the holidays by providing gifts for them personally based on their modest wish list.  Click here to review the list families:  annual “Adopt A Family” gift drive.

 

50 Acts of Kindness

In celebration of Wright State's 50th anniversary, We Serve U would like to challenge all students, staff, faculty and alumni to do 50 acts of kindness in 2017. It doesn't have to be a grand gesture- just do something nice for someone.

Share your acts of kindness with #WrightState50 on our Facebook page or our Twitter Page!

Need ideas?  Here are few ideas from RAOKTBuzzfeed, and Good Housekeeping.

Ongoing Projects

Box Tops for Education Collection

Many of us throw away the Box Tops for Education labels that are on products we use daily. Saville Elementary is a Riverside school that WSU students currently work with. Saville has an Excellent education rating, but also has a high population of needy students. Collecting and donating the Box Tops for Education allows the school to shop for needed supplies and is an easy way we can help. If you are willing to donate your Box Tops for Education to Saville Elementary, please send them to Joanie Hendricks at 350 University Hall.
