Air Force ROTC cadets help children in need

UAA students and faculty in the Air Force ROTC Detachment 001 are leading the charge to help children in need this holiday season. The group donated a bin of toys to the Salvation Army’s Angel Tree program hosted by the Community & Technical College (CTC) Dean’s Office.

Gifts for the Salvation Army’s Angel Tree program
donated by UAA students and faculty in the
Air Force ROTC.
“Air Force Tech. Sgt. MaryJane Harris led this initiative for us this year,” said Lt. Col. Glen Lehman, who heads the Air Force ROTC program at UAA. “In the Air Force we espouse a service-before-self mentality. Our cadets have thoroughly embraced this concept. This semester alone they have donated nearly 500 hours toward helping several nonprofit and community organizations. This is just one way for us to show we are grateful for what we have and to help folks less fortunate.”

The Angel Tree program provides new toys for children up to age 14. Representative names and ages of children are placed on tags and hung on Angel Trees hosted by local businesses and other organizations. Participants select a tag and drop off a gift for their angel to the host organization where Salvation Army staff and volunteers pick it up for distribution.

Interested in participating? Visit the CTC Dean’s Office suite to pick up your angel tag. Gifts must be dropped off by Dec. 18. Questions may be directed to Jessica Rivera at 786-6400. Many thanks to those who have contributed!
