N.C. A&T Family Set to Grant Holiday Wishes to Local Foster Children

EAST GREENSBORO, N.C. (Nov. 20, 2018) – To kick off the traditional season of giving, North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University faculty, staff and students will unite to grant holiday wishes of more than 200 foster children during the second annual “Winter Wishes in Aggieland.”

The Aggie family will gather with representatives from the Guilford County Department of Health and Human Services at the Deese Clock Tower in the center of campus at 5 p.m., Monday, Dec. 3, 2018, to collect holiday gifts.

“Winter Wishes is all about our university doing its little part to ensure that these children, who are in foster care through no fault of their own, are able to have a little holiday cheer,” said Ray Trapp, director of external affairs at N.C. A&T.

Gift drop-offs begin at 3 p.m., Monday. As shuttle buses are loaded, the Aggie family will receive giveaways, holiday treats and performances by the Aggie Cheerleaders, the award-winning North Carolina A&T Fellowship Gospel Choir and the Blue and Gold Marching Machine.

As a land-grant institution, A&T remains committed to continuing its heritage and history of service and civic and community engagement. For more information about Winter Wishes in Aggieland, contact the Office of the University Relations at 336-256-0863.
