Carrie Hernandez, senior student success specialist, and Brenda Meneses of the Wesley Foundation Center request donations to the Angel Tree Dec. 3. The annual Staff Senate project provides Christmas presents for children of low-income families. This year gifts will go to children of Briscoe Elementary. Donations should be delivered 10 a.m-4 p.m. Dec. 8 or Dec. 10 to the Wesley Foundation Center at 102 Belknap Place.
