[203 MTSU again seeks Secret Santas for ‘Little Raiders’ gift-giving drive

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. — Middle Tennessee State University is again calling out to all True Blue Secret Santas for this year’s Little Raiders gift-giving campaign.

The annual event seeks to bring some holiday cheer to needy children and youth in the Blue Raider community.

From now until Dec. 2, members of the campus community can “adopt” a Little Raider by picking a numbered paper ornament hanging on three Christmas trees across campus. The ornaments will list a needy child’s age, gender, clothing size and wish list.

This year, the University Police Department, MTSU Campus Recreation Center, MTSU Student Health Services, the June Anderson Center for Women and Nontraditional Students, the Golden Key Honor Society, and MT Lambda are jointly sponsoring this year’s campaign.

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 an ornament from a tree at one of the following three locations and to please 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 Student Health Services lobby, 1848 Blue Raider Drive

Donated items should be dropped off to the University Police Department no later than Monday, Dec. 5.

For more information about the campaign, contact University Police Sgt. Vergena Forbes at 615 898-2424.
