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.
To qualify for the program:
Must be a current UFV student
Have unmet financial need
Legal guardian with dependent children under the age of 16
November 1 - Applications available from Financial Aid & Awards
November 15 - Application deadline
November 18 - Angels on trees ready for adoption
November 27 - Gift due in to Student Life
If you wish to adopt an angel this Christmas, you can choose an angel from one of the trees on the Abbotsford or Chilliwack campuses. Be sure to register the number on the back of your angel at firstname.lastname@example.org. For those in Mission or Hope who would like to sponsor an angel, please send us an email.
Student Life would like to thank all of the students, staff and faculty who participated in the Angel Tree through sponsoring Angels. In 2012, through the charitable spirit of all who took part, the Student Life department was able to:
- provide 41 families with gifts, food hampers and gift cards to local businesses
- provide 104 children with gifts
A HUGE thank you to Save On Food for their generous donation of food hampers to each applicant!
