The Associated Student of the University of New Mexico’s Community Experience hosts its annual Giving Tree where participants can select a candy cane with a gift tag bearing Christmas wishes for children or families in need.

Attached to each candy cane is a tag with a present for a child in need. Each tag has information about a selected child or family such as age, gender and what they would like for Christmas. It is encouraged the presents are purchased and returned unwrapped to the ASUNM office (SUB 1016) by Dec. 10.

The public is also encouraged to take a photo opportunity with the Christmas tree that will be covered in candy canes. The Giving Tree is located in the Student Union Building Atrium.

Presents will be donated to the UNM Children’s Hospital, Casa Q and Albuquerque Public Schools Title 1.
