UOW Cares® – Giving Tree 2017

For many disadvantaged families, Christmas is a difficult time of uncertainty and stress and many children go without presents. But you can help.

UOW Cares® in collaboration with the Library, Student Services Division and the Advancement Division is supporting The Smith Family’s Christmas appeal, collecting donations of toys and books which will be passed on to families in need. The Smith Family aims to deliver more than 45,000 new toys and 30,000 new books to children around Australia.

“The continued support from UOW students and team members has been greatly appreciated,” said Suanne, Team Leader for The Smith Family. “Generously donated Christmas toys and books can close the gap and allow disadvantaged families to celebrate Christmas.”

Donations of unwrapped, new toys and books can be left at various locations across the Wollongong and Innovation campuses until 5pm Monday 18 December 2017;

  • UOW Library foyer
  • Advancement Division, lower ground floor building 36
  • Student Central building 17
  • UOW College foyer
  • Innovation campus, SmartSpace, Enterprise 1
  • UOW College Reception, building 30
  • UOW Enterprises Atrium, building 39A

Your gesture of goodwill can help bring a smile to someone in need.
