Angel Tree Program
The Angel Tree program helps support our UFV students who face many challenges as they raise their families while pursuing their education. At Christmas, we post angels on trees at the UFV Abbotsford and Chilliwack campuses with each angel representing a child and their gift wish. An unwrapped gift will be given to the parent for their child to open on Christmas morning.
We would like to thank all of the students, staff and faculty who participated in the 2013 Angel Tree through sponsoring Angels. Through the charitable spirit of all who took part, we were able to:
- provide 44 families with gifts, food hampers and Save On Foods gift cards
- provide 104 children with gifts for under their tree on Christmas morning
A HUGE thank you to Save On Food for their generous donation of food hampers to each applicant! They're participation in this program is second to none! This year they donated 3200 lbs of produce! No, that's not a typo. Over 3000 lbs including oranges, potatoes, apples, squash, onions, yams, carrots, healthy lunch snack and much, much more.
