reached into their hearts and wallets to make Christmas special for children
who may not otherwise have any gifts under their Christmas trees.
Project Angel Tree, sponsored
by Trinity's service committee, prompted students to provide 35 gifts to
the Chicago office of World Vision, an international Christian humanitarian
organization. For three years, the College has teamed with World Vision
to play Secret Santa for inner-city kids.
"Many children were blessed
last year by our gifts," said committee member Dana Remington, "and I'm
sure that the kids will love their presents this year. A lot of people
helped to make someone else's Christmas a little brighter."
Each participant at the College
chose a paper ornament from Christmas trees in the campus residence halls
and bought a gift for the child whose name was written on the ornament.
The presents have been earmarked for third-graders of Paderewski Elementary
School on the city's West Side.
