What child wouldn't love opening one of the 50 wrapped packages
under the Giving Tree sponsored by Reinhardt students, faculty, and
staff? As part of the Partners in Education relationship with R.M. Moore
Elementary School, children in three local families will enjoy gifts
given by Reinhardt students, faculty and staff. Gift suggestions had
been listed on ornaments on a tree in the Reinhardt President's lobby;
then an invitation was issued inviting all to be part of this annual
holiday gift giving.
"Every year the ornaments fly off the Giving Tree because we
enjoy knowing that our efforts will add to the joy of Christmas for
these local children," said Reinhardt President Dr. J. Thomas Isherwood.
"It is heart-warming to witness how willing the Reinhardt family is to
give back to others."
On Dec. 13, 2004, R.M. Moore's Parent Involvement Facilitator
Ali Clark and Counselor Edna Cook picked up the gifts from Reinhardt
President Dr. J. Thomas Isherwood.
At Reinhardt, the project was coordinated Ann Atchley, executive assistant to the vice president for external affairs.
The generosity of Reinhardt College
students, faculty and staff will make the holidays a bit brighter for
three local families. Fifty gifts -- including toys, clothes, books and
games -- were donated through the College's annual giving tree as part
of the College's Partner in Education relationship with R.M. Moore
