Muskingum University’s “Christmas on Campus” Helps 13 Area Families

Christmas on Campus Student Life staff membersMuskingum University students, faculty and staff provided more than 500 Christmas gifts for 35 children from 13 different families in the Cambridge area as part of “Christmas on Campus.” In addition to gifts, $750 in cash was donated.

“Every volunteer and donor was filled with joy from the moment they received their child's information to dropping off their gifts,” said Kara Kimes, University chaplain intern. “Participating in projects like ‘Christmas on Campus’ – the ones where we can make a difference in the lives of others – makes Muskingum University more than just a community of educators and students. It makes the University a family.”

Muskingum has participated in “Christmas on Campus” for 27 years.
