ATSU’s SAA hosts annual Angel Tree Project

Kirksville area families to benefit from gift donations

KIRKSVILLE, Mo. (Nov. 28, 2006) – The Student Advocate Association (SAA) at ATSU’s Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine is hosting the 2006 Angel Tree Project to benefit less fortunate families during the holiday season. Three seasonal trees have been placed around Kirksville with angel-shaped cards containing the names of more than 220 individuals in the area. At ATSU-KCOM, Wal-Mart, and Truman State University, people interested in supporting these individuals and families may take a name from the tree and purchase some of the gifts listed on the angel card.

“Last year we received approximately 150 names, and we have exceeded that number this year,” said SAA President Tiffany Sweeney. “We try every year to fill every request, and last year we were able to meet all the needs of every child on the tree.”

Gift requests range from clothing, toys, and games for children to basic clothing and household items for adults.

“Our mission is to support, educate, and serve,” Sweeney said. “Most of the SAA members come to Kirksville because of KCOM. The community is so welcoming and supportive of us, and we feel like this is a wonderful opportunity for us to return some of that kindness.”

The Angel Tree Project will continue through December 13th. All gifts purchased should be dropped off at the Layaway Center at the Kirksville Wal-Mart.
