Joy Drive at OSU

The winter holidays are right around the corner, and the Oregon State University community has the opportunity to come together to make it a little brighter for student families who are struggling financially. The OSU Childcare and Family Resources is hosting their annual Joy Drive this month. The joy drive pairs OSU sponsoring departments or other generous groups with student parents in need of help filling their family’s holiday lists.

Last year, due to the overwhelming kindness of OSU departments, 22 student families/36 children were able to enjoy the holiday season.
Together, with the help and aid of the OSU community, Childcare and Family Resources would again like to provide student families in need with gifts for the 2010 holiday season.

To make this year’s Joy Drive another success, they are inviting individuals and departments to sponsor a family.  Your willingness to support the Joy Drive will bring happiness to many student families.

If you are interested in participating in this year’s Joy Drive please indicate the size of the family you’d like to help, and please reply no later than Nov.8. You will be contacted regarding family that you will be sponsoring no later than Nov. 15.

If you have any questions please contact Childcare and Family Resources at 541-737-4906 or
