UREC receives a list of wishes from the partners for families in need and hangs them on a tree. Members of the community fulfill these wishes.

Last year over 2,000 gifts were donated. For gifts donated this year, UREC will host a wrapping party on Dec. 14 at 1 p.m. where students, faculty and staff will donate supplies and wrap the gifts.
