MTSU is again asking Secret Santas to step up for this year’s Little Raiders gift-giving campaign, an annual event that lends a helping hand to needy children and youths in the Blue Raider community during the holidays.
Through Friday, Dec. 4, members of the campus community can “adopt” a Little Raider by picking a numbered ornament hanging on three Christmas trees across campus. The ornaments will list a needy child’s age, gender, clothing size and wish list.
This year, the MTSU Police Department, June Anderson Center for Women and Nontraditional Students and Campus Recreation Center are partnering with the Golden Key Honor Society, Iota Mu Chapter of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity Inc. and MT Lambda to sponsor the campaign.
The effort targets the children of low-income MTSU students as well as the children of parents receiving assistance from the local Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Program.
Secret Santa participants are asked to pick an ornament from a tree at one of the following three locations and to register as a Secret Santa at that location.
- MTSU University Police Department Lobby, 1412 E. Main St.
- June Anderson Center for Women and Nontraditional Students on the third floor of the Student Union, 1768 MTSU Blvd.
- MTSU Campus Recreation Center lobby, 1848 Blue Raider Drive.
Donated items should be dropped off to the University Police Department by Dec. 4.
For more information about the campaign, contact University Police Sgts. Vergena Forbes or David Smith at 615 898-2424.
