The annual UNM Giving Tree, open to all students, staff, faculty and community members, is up and decorated in the SUB atrium through Friday, Dec. 12, when participants can select a gift tag bearing Christmas wishes for children or families in need.

Each of the 250 ornaments on the Giving Tree has a gift tag with information about a selected child or family such as age, gender and what they would like for Christmas. Gifts must be delivered unwrapped with the gift tag attached by 5 p.m. on Friday Dec. 6 to the ASUNM office located on the SUB Plaza level, room 1016.

Over the years, thousands of gifts have been donated to New Mexico children and families in need during the holiday season. Stop by and pick a gift tag off the Giving Tree and make the holidays brighter for someone in need.

The Giving Tree is co-sponsored by the ASUNM Community Experience and the UNM Student Union Building and benefits underprivileged families and children of New Mexico.
