About the Holiday Gift Drive
This program started in 2020 to provide tangible support to UC Davis' growing population of parenting students, particularly during the difficult time caused by COVID-19. Previously, all gifts were sponsored by the Women's Resources and Research Center. This year, we've elected to invite our broader campus community to participate. We know that many of you "adopt a family" or find other ways to give during this time of year, and thought it would be a wonderful opportunity to make a difference for our very own students and their families. After signing up to sponsor a family (as an individual or with your department), we will do our best to match you with a family or families that meet your specifications. You will be sent some basic information about this family, including children's interests, ages ,and clothing sizes. Gifts must be dropped off at the Women's Resources and Research Center (North Hall) by Friday, December 9th.
