The Office of Student Life at Seminole State has introduced the Snowflake Campaign, a holiday giving initiative that will benefit 50 children of Seminole State students who demonstrate financial need.
Each child selected has a snowflake on a holiday tree in the lobby of building L on the Sanford/Lake Mary Campus. The snowflake includes the child’s age, gender and a list of three gifts the child requested. Faculty, staff and student donors can pick a child’s snowflake from the tree and purchase gifts of up to $30 in value for that child.
“Just the thought of a student experiencing gratitude as a result of this campaign gets us excited,” says Gerald Jones, director of Student Life. “We realize times are still challenging for a few. This new program gives us the opportunity to model giving within our own campus community.”
To be considered for the campaign, students who are parents of children 12 years old or younger completed the Snowflake Campaign application and returned it to the Office of Student Life. The campaign guidelines are as follows:
Students whose child is selected will be notified during the week of Dec. 9. Students will be required to present their student ID to pick up the gifts for their child.
