That’s a wrap

Students and staff members gather in Umrath Hall Nov. 15 to wrap hundreds of gifts received during Washington University’s annual Give Thanks Give Back campaign. WUSTL employees “adopted” 106 families during the 2008 holiday season, donating gifts, clothing, household appliances and other items to more than 310 St. Louis-area residents struggling to overcome poverty. Give Thanks Give Back supports 100 Neediest Cases, a joint project of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch and the United Way.
