The Holiday Spirit: Live It!TM
Holiday Turkey Giveaway
This year marks the 35th anniversary of the annual alumni-sponsored turkey giveaway.
Alumni, faculty, staff, and their friends and families are encouraged to get involved with one of Drexel’s oldest traditions. In 2007, more than 1,200 frozen turkeys were delivered to needy families in West Philadelphia and those served by the 11th Street Family Health Services Center. For more information, visit www.drexel.edu/alumni or call the Office of Alumni Relations at 1-888-DU-GRADS.
12th Annual Holiday Toy Drive and Wrapping Parties
The Office of Government and Community Relations invites the Drexel community to support this year’s toy drive and lunchtime wrapping parties. New, unwrapped toys suitable for children two to 14 years of age will be collected through December 12. Donations can be made at various drop-off locations around campus. This year’s wrapping parties, from December 15 through 17, in the Great Court of the Main Building, will pay special attention to using eco-friendly materials. For more information, call 215-895-2109.
Donations are now being accepted for “Kidney Klause: A Hero for A Day,” an annual program co-sponsored by the Earle Mack School of Law and the National Kidney Foundation of the Delaware Valley to support families affected by kidney disease. Kidney Klause, now in its third year, gives families affected by kidney disease or waiting for a kidney transplant a surprise of holiday gifts and an opportunity to celebrate the season. Donations of cash, hand-crafted items and services, i.e. music lessons, massages, tutoring, etc. are welcome, preferably by December 10. To make a donation, contact law student Kristen Behrens at firstname.lastname@example.org.
