Winter gift giving event: Sponsor a student parent and their family this holiday season

Posted November 17, 2021

Gift Giving Event

Once again, the Student Parent and Resource Center will host the annual Winter Gift Giving Event for Metro’s parenting students. As the holiday approaches, we know that many parents may be struggling to be able to provide for their families and children. Our student parents and their families are incredibly resilient and we see that in their motivation and persistence as they continue their education at Metro. However, this year has been difficult as the pandemic continues to create additional challenges for parenting students. We have 70 families that have registered for holiday support — more than have registered in previous years. We hope that you will consider sponsoring a family and help make their holidays a little brighter.

You may choose to sponsor an individual member in the family or the whole family. Please note that this is anonymous and we do not disclose the identity of the families or sponsors. To access the wishlist and sponsor a family, use this link:
