Annual SJU Giving Tree – NOW VIRTUAL
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Items from the wish lists of local families will be listed on the Virtual Giving Tree. We invite you to choose a family/item and label each item purchased with the Family you have chosen (e.g., Family 1). Gifts may be delivered to the Drexel Library Service Desk no later than Tuesday, December 17th. Gifts may be dropped off at the Post Learning Commons/Drexel Library front desk. The gifts will then be presented to the families in time for their celebrations.

Packing the Thanksgiving Dinners in a plastic tote/bin with a lid makes transporting them much easier.
