Members of the Syracuse University (NY) community can turn to the Office of Community Engagement this holiday season to learn about various giving opportunities. The office has collected a list of different organizations where interested individuals, departments, schools or groups can donate time, goods or money to benefit families in need. Opportunities include building gift baskets for refugee families resettling in the Syracuse area, donating bedding to a group delivering beds to kids in need, participating in a book drive for the local United Way and more.
“This holiday season is another opportunity and example of our campus community’s kindness and generosity in supporting local families and individuals experiencing financial and other challenges” Kathleen Flannery, executive director community engagement, told the Syracuse University News. “Whether it is a specific item from a wish list, a basket of personal items or household supplies, volunteering your time or a monetary donation, your gift will mean everything to people and families in our greater Syracuse community.”
