Giving Tree gifts have been purchased and wrapped and are awaiting distribution on Friday, Dec. 19.

Don’t forget, the CPD Holiday Lunch will begin at noon on Friday, Dec. 19 in Room 170. Bring a side dish, salad or dessert to share, and join in the fellowship of the holiday season with your co-workers!

Gifts from the Giving Tree have been purchased and wrapped, and are awaiting distribution to three CPD client families who needed a little extra help this year. Thanks to everyone who picked out a tag, bought a gift or made a donation.

The DSL Family Cookbooks have been delivered! The books are filled with more than 125 yummy-sounding recipes from DSL participant families and friends. They are in the CPD main office and are available for $15 each, or buy three and get one free! Money raised from the sale of the cookbooks will fund respite care for adults with severe disabilities at DSL.

Giving Tree set up in main office

The Giving Tree has been set up in the CPD Main Office.

The Giving Tree, a holiday tradition at the Center for Persons with Disabilities at Utah State University, has been set up in the CPD Main Office. Here is how your generosity can make the holiday season a little brighter for a few CPD children and families who are in need:

1. Choose an ornament from the Giving Tree that you are willing to purchase – Each ornament lists an item on someone’s “wish list.”

2. Bring your wrapped gift(s) to the annual CPD Holiday Lunch scheduled for Dec 19th at 12 noon (or to the CPD Main Office any time prior to that date). Use the ornament you choose from the tree as a gift tag.

3. Hate to shop? You can donate at the CPD Main Office and we will shop for you.

4. Hate to wrap? We can help. A wrapping station will be set up in room 170 after Thanksgiving Break.

There are other ways to help, too. Donations of wrapping paper or gift bags are welcome. Donated bikes would be welcome, too. And one family needs a Christmas tree and ornaments.
