The caring spirit often exhibited by the UC community is particularly in evidence during the holiday season. As examples of that goodwill, we offer up the following roundup of special projects now underway across UC's campuses.
2002 Medical Center Hats and Mittens Drive
Working in conjunction with Fifth Third Bank, the Medical Center has a goal of collecting 10,000 sets of hats and mittens to benefit underprivileged children at 20 area elementary schools.
This is the fourth year for the effort. Donations can be made at prominent drop-off locations across the Medical Center campus, as well as at approximately 20 area Fifth Third branch locations. The campaign ends Dec. 6.

College of Business Administration's "Giving Tree"
Each year, CBA sponsors a "Giving Tree" in conjunction with Lighthouse Youth Services. The tree, located outside of the CBA Dean's Office, is filled with 'ornaments' for children ranging in age from two months to 16 years.
Each ornament lists a child's name, age and gift needs. Those wishing to help are invited to choose an ornament and buy as many of the listed gifts as they would like for the child. Gifts should be returned unwrapped, but with wrapping paper attached to the gift. The deadline for returning with gifts is Dec. 11.
This is the third year for the effort. For more details and information on how to participate, visit: http://www.business.uc.edu/functions/ShowNews.asp?SCID=179
College of Law's "Coats For Kids" Campaign
Phi Alpha Delta, a student fraternity at the UC College of Law, is collecting coats in conjunction with WCPO's "Caring With Coats" campaign. The students are collecting coats for the needy, with a special emphasis placed on children's coats. The college is also an official drop-off site for WCPO's campaign, and will accept both children's and adult coats, along with other winter accessories.

Raymond Walters College's "Mitten Madness Drive"
StuNO, the Student Nurses Organization at Raymond Walters College, is once again sponsoring a "Mitten Madness Drive" to benefit the Children's Home of Cincinnati.
A wish list has been compiled that includes hats, scarves and mittens, as well as other items such as school supplies and athletic equipment. A receptacle for donations is located in the Home Health Lab, Room 276 of the Science and Allied Health Building.
