The following email was sent to faculty and staff by Co-Director of the Civic Engagement Office Ellie Esmond on Wednesday, No. 28:
Dear Friends and Colleagues,
The holiday season is here and the Civic Engagement Office is once again organizing our annual holiday gift giving program in partnership with the Maternity Care Coalition/MOMobile Family Gift Connection. This program offers an opportunity for Bryn Mawr offices, departments, or individuals & their families to create special memories and bring a message of caring to children in our own community who really appreciate it.
The College community has always shown so much enthusiasm and generosity in past years through our participation in the Family Gift Connection — we're looking forward to partnering with you again this season!
*** Here's how the program works:
PLEASE SIGN UP BY MONDAY, DECEMBER 3!
If your department or family is interested in participating in the MOMobile Family Gift Connection, please reply to this email and provide the following information:
1. THE NAME OF YOUR DEPARTMENT/OFFICE/FAMILY
2. THE NAME OF THE CONTACT PERSON FOR YOUR DEPARTMENT/OFFICE/FAMILY
3. THE NUMBER OF CHILDREN YOUR DEPARTMENT/OFFICE/FAMILY WOULD LIKE TO SPONSOR
Once you register with the Civic Engagement Office, we will work with MOMobile to match gift givers with individual families. I will send the contact person from your department or family a profile of the child/children you have been matched with for the holidays. This profile will include the first name of the child/children, clothing sizes, and a short wish list of toys. You are not obligated to purchase the items on the wish list!
Gifts should be wrapped and delivered to the Civic Engagement Office located in Dolwen, Cambrian Row by NOON on THURSDAY, DECEMBER 13.
MOMobile asks that all items be new and please plan to spend a minimum of $15 per child. (No used clothing or toys, please.)
If you're interested in participating in the MOMobile Family Gift Connection this year, please reply to this email by MONDAY, DECEMBER 3.
If you have any questions, please call 610-526-6591 .
Thanks and have a great holiday season!
