Board of Stewards Donates $12,000 in Gifts to Salvation Army Angel Tree Program

12.11.2013

HIGH POINT, N.C., Dec. 11, 2013 – High Point University’s Board of Stewards spent more than $12,000 on local children this holiday season.

The students purchased clothes, toys and other gifts for more than 125 children involved in the Salvation Army’s Angel Tree project. They collected the money during chapel worship services, private donations and a $5,000 donation from the Student Government Association.

“We believe supporting the Angel Tree Program is important because it gives children hope, and it gives comfort to parents knowing their child will have Christmas gifts,” said Board of Stewards member and HPU junior Alex Nelson. “This year’s donation is a testament to the continued commitment the students and the worshiping community have to help the children of our city, because we recognize we’re High Point’s University.”

The donation became an annual event for the Stewards in 1996.
