The Giving Tree - Helping Chicago Children in Need

The Center for Community Arts Partnerships (CCAP) and the Columbia College Chicago Library have partnered to bring the Columbia community an opportunity to give a gift to child in need. 

The Giving Tree provides an opportunity for students, faculty, and staff from Columbia College Chicago to purchase a gift for a student at one of Columbia's partner elementary schools. View a video about The Giving Tree program here.

The tree will be located across from the Circulation desk in the Library beginning Friday, November 30th. It will contain ornaments representing each child in need, and the gift that they would like for the holiday season. 

Students, faculty and staff can then select a child's gift by pulling the corresponding ornament off the tree, and check out their ornament at the Library Circulation desk. Ornament holders will then purchase the gift noted on the ornament, and bring the ornament and wrapped gift to the Library Circulation Desk by 8pm on December 12th*. Gifts will be delivered to students at a holiday party on their last day of school before break.
