Staff Senate and UNCG community make an impact

Staff Senate partnered with the Pajama Program, a non-profit that provides New Pajamas and New Books to children in need. Forty-one pairs of PJs and 65 books were collected for the Pajama Program Drive and given to the Center for New North Carolinians for distribution to their Oakwood Forest Community Center, Ashton Woods Community Center and Glenhaven Community Center, helping immigrant and refugee families in Greensboro.

The Staff Senate and campus community have also helped make the holidays a little brighter for three UNCG students and three UNCG staff members and their families who have been selected to be recipients of the UNCG Staff Senate Angel Tree. The gift wrapping and Staff Senate Open House are tomorrow (Thursday) in the EUC Pre-function area, 9-11 a.m. All are invited to participate.

In January, Staff Senate will collect items for the Teachers’ Warehouse. Teachers and UNCG’s student teachers will be able to use the items for their students in their classrooms.
