Each year DMU students and employees come together to help ensure that needy local area children have a gift to open on Christmas. The community service committee developed a policy and agreed to adopt 100 students from 3 different schools (50 from Willard Elementary Head Start, 25 from Perkins Elementary, and 25 from Roosevelt High School’s SUCCESS program). Gifts are delivered by facilities and committee members to the respective schools a few days before the kids are released for their holiday break. They are always very thankful, as are the teachers and parents.
