Season of Sharing accepting gifts for local children, families through Dec. 10

Season of Sharing, an annual program that helps local nonprofits provide gifts to children and families, will last through Dec. 10.

Purdue's Roger C. Stewart Leadership & Professional Development Department is partnering with community organizations to collect gifts for Mental Health America’s local chapter, the YWCA Domestic Violence Shelter, LTHC Homeless Services, the Indiana Migrant and Seasonal Farmworker Coalition, Multicultural Efforts to end Sexual Assault (MESA) and the local Salvation Army.

Examples of gift requests include toys, gift cards, clothing and winter accessories. Gifts collected will go to local children, teens, adults and families, and support each of the organizations individual missions.

To select gifts to donate, visit the Roger C. Stewart Leadership & Professional Development Department in the Krach Leadership Center, Room 336, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. This year, a satellite tree and gift drop-off location is also available at the Study Abroad office in Young Hall, Room 105. A staff member will help you select and check out gift requests listed on tree ornaments and tags. Protect Purdue protocols should be followed.

Individuals unable to visit a tree to select an ornament in person should call 765-496-2450 and a staff member will assist with selecting ornaments remotely.

Season of Sharing gifts must be brought unwrapped by 5 p.m. on Dec. 10 to either Krach Leadership Center, Room 336, or Young Hall, Room 105. Although all gifts must be brought in unwrapped, donations of wrapping paper rolls are welcome. 

For more information, contact Marcus Mues at or 765-496-2450.
