AAWCC Angel Trees

Happy holidays from the San Jacinto College chapter of the American Association for Women in Community Colleges(AAWCC). We hope you had a relaxing Thanksgiving with family and friends (and lots of turkey, too)!

Our main focus this year is to support the two national AAWCC initiatives – childcare on campus and women in STEM fields. This holiday season, we will have Angel Trees on each campus that will allow employees to purchase an item for the childcare centers, or to make a monetary donation. In March, we will be featuring some of our own faculty and staff who have pursued a STEM career with news articles and website spotlights. We hope you will help us support these initiatives!
Each childcare center provided the SJC AAWCC chapter with a wish list. We have taken those items and created an Angel Tree (see below for the campus locations). Beginning this Monday, December 5, 2011, you can make a donation by selecting an angel that lists a requested item, and then purchasing that item for the childcare center. If you choose an angel that lists a requested item, a description of where you can find the item and the approximate price of the item are provided. Please feel free to partner up with a colleague or two and go in together to purchase an item. We hope to have all of the items purchased for our little angels!

If you prefer, you can also make a $10 donation. All of the items and money raised will go directly to our children’s centers to support their mission of providing quality childcare to our students and employees.

Donations should be received by Tuesday, December 20, 2011.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact one of the SJC AAWCC chapter officers.
