Santa’s Wish List Needs Your Help

The Santa’s Wish List is a program designed to assist Madison College students that need help providing gifts to their children during the holiday season. Santa’s Wish List is looking for support in the form of monetary donations or by adopting one or more children. There are currently more than 250 children registered for the program. Last year the Santa’s Wish List program was able to provide gifts for 307 children. They are asking donors to bring the unwrapped gifts back to the Student Life Office no later than Monday, Nov. 30. The gifts are valued at no more than $25 per child. Donation checks can be made out to Madison College Foundation with Santa’s Wish List in the memo line and dropped at the Truax or DTEC Student Life Offices.

All donations are tax deductible.
