Giving tree program shows success


The Public Service Center sponsored the Giving Tree project in December during which the MIT community bought gifts for day-care centers, shelters, and community centers in the Cambridge and Boston areas.

We want to thank everybody in the MIT community for their support and generosity that brought gifts to over 700 children. Many people gave more than one gift and did extra last-minute shopping and wrapping.

Everyone who participated had a great time, from creating special gift decorations to personalizing notes. Anybody who stopped by during the last week of the project saw the hundreds of gifts all over the office. Many of the children who received gifts have sent us thank-you cards, and we are displaying some of them on the IAP board in the Infinite Corridor.

Thanks to everyone for participating and making the event an overwhelming success.
