Make a HOLIDAY WISH come true!!
Each year Nazareth College partners with the Society for the Protection and Care of Children (SPCC) to collect holiday gifts for children and young families in need. The SPCC has many programs that help children affected by violence and domestic abuse. They also work with young parents who are struggling to complete their education, find sustaining jobs, and care fortheir little ones.
Now here’s what you can do:
1) Staring on Thursday, November 10, visit the TEDDY BEAR TREE found just past the Circulation Desk in the Lorette Wilmot Library to adopt a TEDDY BEAR (Don’t forget to leave your name, extension, and teddy bear number on the sign out sheet!!)
2) Each BEAR has a holiday wish from a local child, young mother, or young father in need.
3) Go shopping!
4) The most important step: Return your gift to the library Circulation Desk unwrapped no later than Monday, November 28th with the TEDDY BEAR securely attached. If you can return your gift earlier please do! (That helps us to keep things organized!)
The gifts will then be delivered to the Society for the Protection and Care of Children, who will wrap and distribute them! Don’t miss out on this chance to make a difference in a child’s life or to help a young adult! We can guarantee you won’t regret it! For more information about the SPCC, and their work in Rochester starting in 1875, look up the SPCC on the web at www.spcc-roch.org.
