Giving Trees

Every year Augustana students, faculty, staff, and administration collect gifts for local volunteer agencies. This annual tradition helps provide Christmas to many children and families throughout the Sioux Falls Area. Gifts will be donated to The Heartland House, Children's Inn, and Children's Home Society.  A new need we are hoping to fill in 2015 is socks for the United Gospel Mission. Giving Trees will be located in residence halls and academic buildings prior to Thanksgiving break through finals in December.

Three easy steps to participate:

  1. Take an ornament from a Giving Tree
  2. Purchase the item while out shopping
  3. Return the unwrapped item to the tree prior to Wednesday, December 16
