Now through Wednesday, Nov. 29, Christmas trees will be on display at various locations on the campus. Trees will be decorated with tag ornaments listing a child’s age, gender, clothing size and wish list.

Participants are asked to register as a Secret Santa and pick a numbered tag from a tree at one of the designated campus locations.
