2020 Virtual Annual SJU Giving Tree 

This year, Covid-19 restrictions make collecting for the Virtual Giving Tree a totally virtual
experience! We ask those who wish to submit a family to do so by creating an online Wish List.
The Wish List should have 3 to 4 items per person, and can be posted online on either Amazon,
Target, or Walmart.
Once your wish list is created, submit it to the email below by the deadline: December 10, 2020
IMPORTANT: We are limiting the Giving Tree to the FIRST 5 lists submitted.

 ALSO – Project H.O.M.E. expressed a need for additional frozen turkeys – no basket required!

If you have any questions or are interested in participating in Project H.O.M.E.’s Turkey Basket Drive, please email Pat Gregg at pgregg@sju.edu with your departmental or individual name and the number of baskets and/or frozen turkeys you will be donating.  Baskets will be collected on Tuesday, November 26th between 8 – 10 AM at the Hagan Arena.

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




This August, the ASC provided bags of school supplies to the teachers at our neighbor, Gompers Elementary.  Over 50 bags were supplied ensuring a great start to a new school year!
