[214] Calling all Secret Santas: Little Raiders need you this holiday season

The Little Raiders gift-giving campaign is back for another year of giving a helping hand to needy children and youth in the Blue Raider community during this holiday season.

The Middle Tennessee State University Police Department, June Anderson Center for Women and Nontraditional students and Campus Recreation Center again are partnering with the Golden Key Honor Society, MTSU OWLS (Older Wiser Learners) and MT Lambda to sponsor the Little Raiders campaign.

From Monday, Nov. 17, through Friday, Dec. 5, members of the campus community can “adopt” a Little Raider by picking a numbered ornament hanging on three Christmas trees across campus. The ornaments will list a needy child’s age, gender, clothing size and wish list.

The effort targets the children of low-income MTSU students as well as the children of parents receiving assistance from the local Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Program.

Secret Santa participants are asked to pick a numbered ornament from a tree at one of the following three locations and to register as a Secret Santa at that location.

·      MTSU University Police Department Lobby, 1412 E. Main St.
·      June Anderson Center for Women and Nontraditional Students on the third floor of the Student Union, 1768 MTSU Blvd.
·      MTSU Campus Recreation Center lobby, 1848 Blue Raider Drive

Donated items should be dropped off to the University Police Department by Friday, Dec. 5.

For more information about the campaign, contact University Police Sgts. Vergena Forbes or David Smith at 615 898-2424.
