USU Eastern's SUN center partners with United Wayline
The SUN center has always been involved in helping with community projects including this weekend's recent pumpkin sales to provide direct support for United Ways Angel Tree Program. With the holiday season right around the corner, many families are starting to worry about how they are going to find the funds to get their children something for Christmas. To help some of these struggling families, the SUN Center is working with United Way of Eastern Utah and The Community Angel Tree. Angel Tree is a program that is hosted by United Way, and its mission to give every family in the Carbon and Emery county communities the opportunity to have a Merry Christmas. The SUN Center is doing all that they can to help United Way accomplish this. The SUN Center also has a goal of trying to encourage every student to be involved in service to the community. Angel Tree is a great way to help this happen. Each year the SUN Center adopts various names from United Way's Angel Tree program so that the students at USU Eastern have an opportunity to help the children of those families who are struggling to just make ends meet this holiday season. This project allows students to have fun doing community service as they shop for the various wish items; as well as giving them the opportunity to have a part in giving a child the kind of Christmas they would otherwise not have been able to have. Throughout the entire academic year the SUN Center has and will work to provide service opportunities for USU Eastern students.
