Every year, we ask employees to bring children’s books and/or non-perishable food items to the annual University holiday reception — slated for 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., Tuesday, Dec. 2, in Titan Underground at Reeve Memorial Union. Your generosity each year has contributed to the quality of life for area children and expanded the reach for community food pantries.
This year’s holiday reception provides another opportunity for us to support our students who may be impacted by the uncertain and challenging economic situation via the Student Financial Emergency Response Fund. Thanks to the generosity of Sodexo, which has agreed to provide the refreshments and food at no cost, the University will make a donation of $1,000 to the fund on behalf of our employees. The fund is managed by the UW Oshkosh Foundation and administered by the Financial Aid Office.
In addition to donations of books and food items, you also may donate monetary gifts to the Fund during the holiday reception and support our students experiencing personal or family financial hardships that impact their ability to remain in school.
Thank you for your support this holiday season in enriching the lives of those in our immediate and extended communities. If you have not indicated your plans to attend, please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org or 424-0201 by Wednesday, Nov. 26.
