University of Kentucky College of Agriculture

Circle of Love 2013

The College of Agriculture, Food and Environment participated in the annual Circle of Love program sponsored by the Center for Community Outreach. The Circle of Love program matches local underprivileged elementary school children with UK faculty, staff and students who will make Christmas a little brighter for the children.

Teachers and counselors from local schools compile lists of students and their wishes and send them to the University. The UK “Santas” select a student and purchase presents for the child based on the child’s “Wish List.” The lists often include everything from new shoes to the latest toy fad.

CAFE provided for the needs of 50 children. StaffLINKS chair, Christine Tawasha would like to thank all who participated. She is grateful for Ann Norris and Cindy Stidham who helped transport the gifts to the Student Center.
