Once again, Texas A&M University at Galveston will participate in the Adopt-an-Angel project. Partnering with the local Salvation Army and Galveston County Child Protective Services the campus community will provide holiday gifts for many local children who are from either low-income families or have been removed from the family home and placed into the foster-care system. Gifts are offered for children ranging in age from just a few months up to 17 years old.

“This is the 17th year that the university has been participating in this community effort,” said Jennifer Adams, business coordinator for the university’s Human Resources Department.

“Last year, our campus community helped provide gifts for 29 boys and 25 girls,” she said. “This year, we received the names of 61 boys and girls.”

Gifts may include items such as girls’ and boys’ clothes, toys, books and much more. Staff volunteers also offer to shop for these items, if campus community members don’t have time. They simply drop off funds to the Human Resources Office, and the HR staff will even shop for the gifts. Gift wrapping is also provided.

Gifts are due by Dec. 6. A list of available angels can be seen at: https://www.tamug.edu/hrd/Events/HolidayAngels.html
