Adopt-A-Don Program

Adopt- A-Don Program

The Adopt-A-Don project is an assistance program that aids selected students and their families during the holiday season. We are asking our faculty, staff, campus departments, and/or students’ organizations to “adopt” our students and their families for the 2022 holiday season. This project will assist with toys, clothing, and household needs. We ask that any gifts and items must be unopened, bagged and/or wrapped upon delivery. Faculty, staff, campus departments, and/or student organizations can register to adopt a Don starting September 5- October 3, 2022 via the link below. The maximum amount of $250 is allowed per family. If you have questions, please email [email protected].
