ISU Veterans’ Sanctuary seeks donations for ‘Operation Gift Wrap’ through Dec. 13

Posted November 24, 2010

The Idaho State University Veterans' Sanctuary Program is sponsoring the second annual "Operation Gift Wrap" to provide Christmas gifts to ISU's student veterans and their families.

The program is seeking help from the community in fulfilling the wish list. Participants are asked to donate a specific item listed on the ISU Veterans' Sanctuary website, www.isu.edu/veterans, or by donating cash so the item may be purchased. The last day for donations is Dec. 13.

Drop-off locations for donations are:

• Veterans' Sanctuary Office on the Pocatello campus, Room 157B in the ISU Rendezvous Complex;

• ISU Bennion Student Union Building on the Idaho Falls campus, c/o the Idaho Falls Armed Forces Veterans' Club; or

• Veterans' Services in the Registrar’s Office, located on the third floor of the Museum Building on the ISU Pocatello campus.

In addition, members of the Pocatello Vetertans' Club will man tables where donations will be accepted from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Pond Student Union Foyer Atrium Dec. 6-10 and in the Rendezvous Complex Atrium on  Dec. 7 and 9.

Santa's list for ISU veterans will be updated every day on the Veterans' Sanctuary website. The list will also be posted at each of the drop-off locations, and a tag for each wish will be hung from a tree outside of the Sanctuary office. The donated gifts will be sorted, wrapped and delivered to the veterans' families before Christmas.

For more information, contact Casey Santee at (208) 282-4298 or santcase@isu.edu for more information or to make arrangements for a donation.
