Giving Tree Gifts Due by this Wednesday at 5:00 PM! Don't Forget the Children!

The Annual Giving Tree Program serves local children who would otherwise not receive gifts this holiday season through the local non-profit organizations, Stepping Stones and Northern Valley Catholic Social Services (Northern Valley Teen Parent Program).  The Giving Tree Program is organized and implemented entirely by CSU Chico student Peer Educators within the Campus Alcohol & Drug Education Center with the generous support of many campus partners.  The Giving Tree program has been a part of the Chico community for more than 20 years and is designed to promote the spirit of giving, community service and gratitude at CSU Chico during the winter season and throughout the year.  Through the course of the program more than 12,500 gifts have been provided.  Everyone in the campus community is encouraged to participate!  And it's easy!


1)  Simply take a Gift Tag with a Child's Name and Age off of one of the Giving Trees located on campus

2)  Purchase an appropriate gift for that child*

3)  Return the gift, UNwrapped with the original Gift Tag attached to it to one of the Drop boxes located on campus or to the CADEC office in SSC 180
