Students in the Ruskin Campus' Student Occupational Therapy Association (SOTA) recently hosted an Angel Tree event sponsored by the Salvation Army in the Tampa Bay area. 

The Salvation Army Angel Tree program helps provide Christmas gifts for children around the country each year. Once a child or senior adult is registered and accepted as an angel, their Christmas wish list is shared with donors in the community who purchase gifts of new clothing and toys. The gifts are then distributed to the family to place under their family Christmas tree.

"It was a great success, and we were able to get at least one gift for all 40 of our 'angels'" expressed Margaret Logan, OTD student at Gannon's Ruskin Campus
