Giving is contagious – From teddy bears to cooking utensils to shoes and soft blankets, a slew of gifts awaits a lucky in-need family adopted this holiday season by employees in NAU’s Planning, Budget and Institutional Effectiveness office.

Brighten the holidays for Flagstaff families

Giving and helping families in need this holiday season is made easy through the Service Professional Advisory Council, which has adopted two local families for gift-giving.  

Toys, presents and gift cards for grocery or department stores are sought to make the season merrier for the families. Wondering what to give? Check out a web site that pinpoints the specific family needs.

Donations will be accepted until 5 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 16. For north campus, contact Stephen Riggs at (928) 523-5051; central campus, Marcelle Coder at (928) 523-9188; south campus, Jane Thompson (928) 513-7387 or Jessica Fitchett at (928) 523-7151.
