The generosity of Penn College employees and students will once again benefit the greater campus community, as the Wish List Tree generated 80 gifts for local children aged 3 months to 12 years. The Office of Campus and Community Engagement facilitated donations, which were collected in the Bush Campus Center for pickup by The Salvation Army. Community Peer Educator David A. Gadalla organized the ornament gift tags, decorated the tree and helped load the presents for their joyful delivery.
