With holiday break less than a week away, A&F staff members are gathering together, giving back and celebrating the season. Below are photos and information on some of the departmental events and collections across campus.
TUPD Collects Blankets for the Homeless
Throughout the month, the TUPD collected blankets for the homeless program at Saint Vincent de Paul Church in Baltimore. Santa was available in the Union on December 9 to take photos with students, faculty and staff who contributed blankets to the cause. More than 50 blankets have been collected thus far and will be picked up by Saint Vincent’s next week. If you’d like to contribute, take your blanket to UU 200F from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. weekdays until December 20.
Financial Services Holds Gingerbread Competition
Financial Services held a gingerbread house decorating contest the week of December 6. Staff members Sandy Levin, Phyllis May, Karen Eaton, Laura Jackson, Christine Trzcinski, Carolyn Scott and Jen Shear took home first prize with their “Be Yule Thinking Outside House.”
Operation Santa Cop
Santa Cop is back and ringing his bells in a building near you! Santa Cop stopped by campus offices this week to remind faculty, staff and students to buckle up this holiday season. He handed out crime prevention tips with candy canes attached to help make everyone’s holidays a little safer.
