PITT-BRADFORD’S STAFF ASSOCIATION TO HELP ELF FUND WITH ‘SHOEBOX DRIVE’

BRADFORD, Pa. – The University of Pittsburgh at Bradford’s Staff Association is helping out the ELF (Era’s Less Fortunate) Fund this year with a shoebox drive to provide needy children and senior citizens with a box of holiday cheer.

To take part, take a shoe box and fill it with new items for an infant up to 12 months old, a toddler (1-3 years), child 4 to 5 years old, 6 to 8 years old or 9 to 12 years old, teenager or for a senior citizen.

Items can include toys, school supplies, coloring books and crayons, personal care supplies, etc. Wrap the shoebox and label and return to the information desk in the Frame-Westerberg Commons by Dec. 5, 2008.

The public is invited to participate.

The idea came about when Karen Strotman, a member of the staff association’s events committee, saw the shoebox idea used to gather supplies as part of a national gift drive for children.

With applications to the ELF Fund up this year, the committee wanted to help families in the Bradford area.

“The ELF Fund was real responsive to the idea,” said Denise Perkins, another member of the committee. “It’s really limited only to where your imagination will take you.”

Perkins said that some ideas for boxes were to fill one with toiletries for a senior citizen or baby or create a theme such as movie night for teens or cars for a young boy.

For more information, contact Strotman at 362-7662 or klb1@pitt.edu or Perkins at 362-7630 or ddp7@pitt.edu.
