ANGEL TREE: How to brighten a homeless child’s Christmas

<From Dec. 2012, Archived >

The Angel Tree ornaments have been put up on the Christmas Tree in the John A. Burns School of Medicine Health Sciences Library. Our medical students from the Pediatrics Interest Group, Family Medicine Interest Group and H.O.M.E. Project are hoping you will consider brightening the holidays for homeless keiki by choosing an ornament off the tree and providing a new gift for that child.

Dr. Jill Omori, Founder of the Homeless Outreach and Medical Education (H.O.M.E.) Project, suggests gifts should be around $20 in value. She said presents should be turned in by December 14.

The OB/GYN interest group has also put up reindeer ornaments representing the need of gifts for the homeless women in the same shelters. The group hopes you will consider brightening up the holidays for a homeless woman by choosing a reindeer off the tree and providing a new gift, valued around $10-$20, to them.

Where to turn in the presents?

Turn in the gifts (unwrapped) at the Medical Education Building’s third floor lobby, outside The Office of Student Affairs, Office of Medical Education and Department of Native Hawaiian Health. Directions are provided in the library lobby.
