MTSU Little Raiders 2019 campaign seeking True Blue Secret Santas

True Blue Secret Santas are once again needed for this year’s MTSU Little Raiders gift-giving campaign.

This collaborative effort to assist children in need this holiday season is being sponsored this year by the University Police Department, MTSU Campus Recreation, Student Health Services, and the June Anderson Center for Women and Nontraditional Students in partnership with the Nutrition and Dietetic Association, Pinnacle Honor Society and the Nontraditional Student Organization.

Now through Nov. 29, Christmas trees will be on display at two campus locations. Trees will be decorated with tag ornaments listing a child’s age, gender, clothing size and wish list.

Participants are asked to register as a Secret Santa and pick a numbered tag from a tree at one of the designated campus locations.

Christmas tree locations are:

• University Police Department Lobby, 1412 E. Main St.; open 24 hours.

• Student Health Services, 1848 Blue Raider Drive. Hours are 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Monday-Thursday and 8 a.m.-4 p.m. Friday; the office will be closed Thursday and Friday, Nov. 27-28, for the Thanksgiving holidays.

Secret Santas are asked to drop off all gifts and donations at the University Police Department by Monday, Dec. 2. Please remember that the MTSU Police Department is open 24 hours a day, so you many drop your gifts off anytime during or after normal office hours for the duration of the drop-off period.

Please contact Community Oriented Policing Services Sgt. Vergena Forbes or COPS Specialist Angela Todd at 615-898-2424 with any questions about the Little Raider gift-giving campaign.
