Faculty, staff invited to participate in holiday gift program

For the past 20 years Women in Higher Education and Wisconsin Women in Higher Education Leadership have sponsored a holiday gift program, which assists UW-Eau Claire's low-income, nontraditional-age and traditional-age students with families.
WHE/WWHEL recently sent a mailing to nontraditional-age students inviting them to place their names on a gift "wish" list. Students who respond are asked to provide the ages of their children and their choice of gifts (a toy, article of clothing, up to $20 per person.) Information from each gift receiver is anonymously matched to a gift giver. Gifts are distributed during finals week.

If you would like to participate in the holiday gift-giving project, contact Patti See at or 715-836-4826 by Nov. 26. If you would like to make a monetary donation, checks (payable to Women in Higher Education) may be sent/brought to Patti See, Academic Skills Center, Old Library 2112. More information.
