HPU Family Donates More Than 750 Stockings to Salvation Army

Stuff a Stocking 1HIGH POINT, N.C., Dec. 15, 2014 – More than 750 stockings filled nearly two dozen boxes at High Point University on Dec. 12, destined to be delivered to the hands of a child by Christmas morning.

The stockings were filled with toys, school supplies, toiletries, teddy bears and more thanks to HPU students, faculty and staff. This is the fourth year HPU has participated in the Salvation Army’s Stuff a Stocking campaign. This year’s donation surpassed last year’s donation of over 600 stockings.

“It is so heartwarming to come here, see this room full of stockings and to know that some child will have a Christmas this year,” says Greyson Whitaker, SGA president.

“To give back in any way large or small is a great feeling.”

This year the Student Government Association donated 300 stockings to the cause. Men’s lacrosse, women’s volleyball, track and field, and other organizations on campus were also contributors to this year’s campaign.

“This shows the caring and giving nature that our faculty and staff embody in and outside of the classroom,” says Gail Tuttle, vice president of Student Life. “It is very heartfelt to see that our students are living what they are learning in the classroom.”
