TWU's Holiday Gift Program seeks family sponsors

The TWU Holiday Gift Program for students with young families was established more than 20 years ago to assist TWU student parents with financial needs by providing gifts for their children during the holiday season. This program has grown over the years, and your help is needed now more than ever. Last year was the biggest call for help, with 192 TWU student parents requesting aid for their families (more than 357 children).

You can help. Be a family sponsor, either individually or as a department. Your support will help make the holidays merry for our students and their children. If you volunteer to be a TWU family sponsor, you will be notified of your sponsored family Nov. 15.

Complete the brief survey and receive gift suggestions for your children.

Want to give, but don't want to shop? Make a monetary donation to the program.

Unwrapped gifts should be delivered the week of Nov. 22 – Dec. 3:

  • Gifts for on-campus families should be delivered to the Lowry Woods Community Center
  • For off-campus families, deliver your gifts to the CARE Office Brackenridge Hall, 209
  • Dallas campus sponsors will be contacted directly regarding Dallas locations

Along with your unwrapped gifts, donations of wrapping paper or gift bags with tissue paper would be appreciated.

Contact Jessica Burchfield at or Mere Maddox at if you have questions.
