Student Parent Center Holiday Giving Program

The Metropolitan State University community can be proud that for 16 years we have sponsored families in need over the holiday season. For the past four years, donations were made to families of our Metropolitan State students who were in need of help and support. The Student Parent Center is offering the Holiday Giving Program again this year and asking of the community’s help.

Many students at Metropolitan State University are parenting as they attend school and their budgets can be very tight. If you are interested in sponsoring a Metropolitan State family, or can contribute gifts for an individual child, please contact for more information.

There are already families who are eagerly waiting to see if they will be adopted this year. Your generosity through gifts and donations last year made for some very happy children. This year those student parents in need are coming to us in greater numbers and we would like to help each and every family.

Please contact office manager Ruth Bier at the Student Parent Center at, if you’d like to sponsor a student parent family this holiday. Specify the size of the family (two, four, or more) you would be willing to sponsor or an individual child you would like to help during the holidays. Acceptable donations:

•    Toys and goods (please do not wrap, but provide gift wrap for the student)
•    Gift cards
•    Kohl’s Cash (which will be used to buy gifts)
•    Checks made out to Metropolitan State Foundation (write checks to: “Holiday Giving Program”)

Toys will be accepted up until the Christmas holiday.
