EAST GREENSBORO, N.C. (Nov. 15, 2019) – When the Deese Clock Tower at North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University transitions into a decorative holiday display, it’s an indication that the university is gearing up for its annual holiday giving celebration, Winter Wishes in Aggieland.

In partnership with the Guilford County Department of Health and Human Services, university employees and constituents will donate gifts to 200 foster children during the event, Monday, Dec. 2, 2019, from 4 to 6 p.m. at the Clock Tower.

The celebration provides another opportunity for the campus community to give back to the local community by way of time and treasure. Each child will be granted three gift wishes by various departments across the university.

As shuttle buses are loaded, the evening will be filled with giveaways, holiday treats and appearances and performances by student groups including the Aggie Cheerleaders, mascots Aggie and Aggietha, the N.C. A&T Fellowship Gospel Choir and the Blue and Gold Marching Machine.

As a land-grant institution, N.C. 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 University Relations at 336-256-0863.
