WHEN: Now through Dec. 17

WHERE:  TTUHSC Academic Classroom Building, 3601 4th St., first floor lobby and The F. Marie Hall Student Synergistic Center

EVENT: The Salvation Army Angel Tree program matches donors with underprivileged children to provide them with new gifts and clothing during the holidays.
