Ancilla College Collects Toys for Children in Need

December 5, 2013

  12/06/13 This holiday season, 16 children in need will be spared a Christmas with no presents.  They will have the Ancilla College community to thank for that.

Ancilla College held its annual “Angel Tree” collection.  Each year the focus is a toy collection for children of low-income students at the Donaldson-based campus.  The Ancilla College community has such a giving spirit, that within two days of the start of this year’s Angel Tree activity, every child was accounted for.

“It is a blessing to help others, especially at Christmas,” said MaryAnn Rush, coordinator of the Angel Tree project this year.  “I am extremely grateful to everyone that participated and made this Christmas a little brighter for all of the kids involved.”

The 16 children were able to list three wishes for Christmas.  Those wishes were put on the back of a card with their name and hung on the angel tree in the College’s front lobby. Those looking to donate were able to select a child and grant one of their toy “wishes”.

Ancilla College ( is a Catholic, liberal arts, Associate’s Degree college in Donaldson, Indiana, sponsored by the Poor Handmaids of Jesus Christ.
