For the past 23 years, the Adopt-a-Family program has marked the unofficial start to the University of Windsor’s holiday season.

Each year teams of students, faculty, staff, and individual donors fulfill the Christmas wishes of 37 local families and youth. This year’s efforts yielded $18,415 in donations.

Earlier this week, boxes of clothes, toys, housewares and food filled a truck outside the Welcome Centre as the culmination of a holiday program that has become a campus tradition.

“We know there are a lot of needy people hoping for a merry Christmas,” says coordinator Mary Anne Beaudoin of the Office of Public Affairs & Communications. “Giving to the less fortunate is an important part of enjoying the holidays, and it is nice to see different departments and offices come together to make a difference.”
