The Giving Tree Project theme for this year is “Deck the Halls with Christmas Presents.” Washburn students are encouraged to pick up a tag from any
Giving Tree Project location, purchase the requested present, and return the unwrapped gift with the tag attached to it by noon on Dec. 4. The presents will benefit children in Topeka, ages newborn to 13, and will be distributed through Doorstep, Let’s Help and the Topeka Rescue Mission.
Giving Tree Project Christmas trees can be found at the Catholic Campus Center, the International House, the Leadership Institute office (Benton 408), the Radiology Department office (Benton 114), the Living Learning Center lobby, the Student Recreation and Wellness Center and the Washburn Student Government Association office.
The Giving Tree Project was begun in 2002 by the Catholic Campus Center, located at 17th and Jewell.
