The Annual Student Affairs Help an Elf program is designed to assist currently enrolled, full-time APSU students with holiday shopping by providing gifts for their children. Recipients of the holiday gifts will be children of income eligible APSU students who are currently enrolled in 12 or more credit hours and are not participating in any similar program off campus.
We will make every attempt to provide assistance to as many families as possible, but please note that priority will be given to first time participants and there is no guarantee of assistance. Information will remain confidential.
Applications will be available in Student Affairs, UC 206, beginning Friday, November 9. The deadline for all applications for recipients in the program is Monday, November 26, 2012 at 4 p.m. Applications will be confidential. Contact Student Affairs at 221-7341 if you would like additional information.
The eligible families are "adopted" by Austin Peay organizations, offices, departments and groups. Elf adoptions by those wishing to purchase gifts will begin on November 27. The deadline for packages to be turned in to Student Affairs is December 12. Please contact Student Affairs at 7341 if you are interested in adopting an elf this year, or if you would like to assist the program.
HISTORY OF THE PROGRAM
