Ursuline's Angel Tree was a success once again.
This year, Ursuline collected more than 250 gifts for four agencies.
Faculty, staff, and students helped provide Christmas joy for Association for Independent Living, AIDS Services of Dallas, St. Vincent de Paul's StudyTime Program, and Catholic Charities of Dallas. Toys, blankets, and pots and pans were common requests. Larger items, including vacuums and microwaves, were also donated.
The four agencies came to Ursuline last week to pick up their donations.
"We appreciate everyone's generosity," Service Coordinator Gabi Merani said. "The Ursuline community brightened the holidays for so many people. That's what it's all about."
