Holiday Helper Kick-Off Event
The Center for Community Engagement and Service Learning will kick off the 2018 Holiday Helper program with an open house at the center (300 W. North Street, Normal) on November 2, 11:30 a.m.–1:30 p.m. Stop by for cupcakes, cocoa, holiday cheer, and more importantly, to select a child to sponsor for 2018.
Each year, the center partners with local organizations to identify children in need. In conjunction with each partnering agency, the children and their families identify personal wants and needs. The center then asks Illinois State students, faculty, and staff to help sponsor each child by purchasing gifts for them valuing approximately $50.
The gifts are wrapped during wrapping parties at the center and later delivered at holiday parties held at each local organization.
