During the celebration, employees will see their donations to the Gifts for Children program placed under the university's holiday tree.

Employees can donate to the Gifts for Children program by bringing a new unwrapped gift for a boy or a girl to the Gifts for Children representative in their offices. Cash donations also are accepted. The gifts are distributed to children treated in the University Health System, Christus Santa Rosa Children's Hospital, the PREMIEre Program and community pediatrics' Children with AIDS Program.
