OSU’s annual Angel Tree program is back through Dec. 9 – FOX23 News

STILLWATER, Okla. — The Oklahoma State University Non-Traditional Student Organization will be kicking off the season of giving with the Angel Tree program. The angel tree will be set up on the second floor of the Student Union in the Campus Life Lounge.

Angel Tree is a program that gives people a chance to anonymously provide a Christmas to children who otherwise may not have one. For those interested in giving to the program, it’s as easy as picking a name off the angel tree in the Student Union and buying gifts based on what the child needs.

“There will be a place for people to put their information, so we know what name they’ve taken,” said Brian Blevins, coordinator of off campus and non-traditional student services. “The names on the tree have a list of items on the back that the children may need or want. It can be anything from necessities such as a coat, shirt, pants and shoes, or people can give them some fun things to brighten their day like toys, games, a scooter, all sorts of stuff.”

The OSU Non-Traditional Student Organization pairs with student organizations and community partners in the area like the Payne County Youth Services, Department of Human Services, Salvation Army and Big Brothers Big Sisters to find names of children to put on the tree.

The angel tree will be up in the Student Union from Nov. 18 to Dec. 9. For those wanting to take on an angel, all unwrapped gifts should be returned to the Leadership and Campus Life Lounge, room 211 of the Student Union, by 4 pm on Dec. 9.
