More than 200 staff, faculty and students from Friends University took a break from regular schedules on Monday. They came together to organize gifts for the Salvation Army's Angel Tree and Star of Hope programs.
The gifts will be distributed to more than three thousand area families, including nearly 10-thousand kids.
The school's Campus Visit Coordinator, Deb Bolen tells us, "The best part about today is everybody gets together and you get to see everybody you maybe havn't seen for a while and we're like a family. It's very family oriented a big family that's come here to help".
This is the 20th consecutive year Fiends has helped the Salvation Army get ready for the big giveaway.
