Monday, December 2, 2002
Called the Angel Tree Project, the program is sponsored by OCC's Associated Students and College Life Office. The project benefits children enrolled in OCC's Children's Center and also local senior citizens groups.
Unwrapped gifts may be dropped off at the Associated Students and College Life Office Mondays through Thursdays from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m., and Fridays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. The office is located in OCC's Student Center.
The names of needy children and seniors are hanging on fully-decorated "Angel Tree" Christmas trees in the Administration Building, Student Bookstore, Chemistry Building, Community Education Building, Counseling Center, EOPS Office, Financial Aid Office, Fine Arts Building, International Students Center, Library, Literature and Languages Building, Puente Office, Science Hall, Student Center, Student Health Center, School of Sailing and Seamanship, and Transfer Center. Local residents may pick names from the trees in advance of purchasing gifts, or can simply drop off unwrapped presents for children and seniors at the Associated Students Office.
