A warm, fuzzy pink sweat suit. A sought-after Yu-gi-oh trading card game. Crisp boot cut blue jeans. New tennis shoes. A cuddly baby doll.

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 Elementary School.
