As you perhaps know, the Salvation Army’s Toy Town program provides food for families, as well as gifts for children through age twelve. Teenagers do not receive gifts. In past years, the Holiday Clearing House worked in cooperation with the Salvation Army’s Toy Town to operate Teen Town. This year, Augustana College is honored with the opportunity to head the program for the 2013 Christmas season.
For the second year, Augustana students involved in Serving and Learning Together (SALT) are overseeing Teen Town, a Salvation Army program that provides gifts to teens between 13-18 years of age from low-income families. Teen Town allows parents to choose a gift for their teenager once they have chosen gifts for their smaller children through the Salvation Army.
Students are hoping to collect at least 550 gifts in the $20-$25 range by Sunday, Dec. 15. Gifts should be brought to the Student Services suite inside Morrison Commons.
Teen Town allows parents to choose a gift for their teenager once they have chosen gifts for their smaller children through the Salvation Army. Your generosity means all children in each family will enjoy a holiday gift! Without your gift, this will not happen!
