New Twist on Holiday Giving
Employees can use seasonal parties and gift exchanges as a
way to help
local families in need through the Adopt-a-Family Program,
sponsored by the Office of Faculty, Staff
and Retiree Programs. Gifts collected go to help at-risk
youth, foster children and families in crisis.
Faculty, staff members or departments "adopt" a person,
family or agency and purchase gifts from a
wish list written by the recipients.
For more information about the program or to submit an
adoption request, go to
www.jhu.edu/hr1/fsrp/adopt_fam.html or contact Sondra
email@example.com or 410-516-0338. Gifts and donations
are due by Friday, Dec. 14.
