With the holiday season just around the corner, SNHU’s Bradley Three Year Honors Program Principles of Management class is offering students a way to give back.  

The Angel Tree Campaign provides gifts to those who might not otherwise receive them during the holiday season. Starting November 14, ten decorated trees will be put up in different buildings around campus with tags on them that contain information about a person and what kind of gift he or she would like to receive.  

Students and faculty from the SNHU campus community can take a tag, buy a gift, wrap it and return it to campus so it can be delivered around the beginning of December. 

The campaign also includes raffles for themed baskets that have been donated by University staff, faculty, students and vendors. The money raised by this raffle will be used to buy gifts for tags that may have been taken from the trees but never returned with the corresponding gift. 

In previous years a total of 369 gifts were returned and over 25 baskets were raffled off. Raising more than $2100 last year, the Angel Tree campaign strives to make this year even more successful than the last.  

Some of the organizations that provide names and information for the tags include Title One – Manchester School District, Pine Haven, Community Action Program –Suncook CAP, The Upper Room, Emily’s Place – YWCA, Manchester Office of Youth Services and Caregivers. 

Sophomore Amanda Kelly is involved in the campaign as part of the Bradley Three Year Honors Principles of Management class.  

“I am excited to be a part of the Angel Tree Campaign and hope all SNHU students participate by taking a tag from one of our on-campus Christmas trees,” said Kelly. “As a community…we can spread happiness and joy during the holiday season.” 

Students that would like to get involved and learn more about this campaign can find additional information on Facebook at SNHU Angel Tree or on Instagram and Twitter @snhu_angeltree.
