ELF Committee begins holiday effort with luncheon, salsa contest

TTUHSC Employee Love Fund (ELF)In an effort to brighten the upcoming holiday season for a group of TTUHSC families who need assistance, the Employee Love Fund (ELF) committee hosted its Holiday Kick-Off Luncheon Nov. 17 in the Harrington Auditorium. The luncheon included a nacho pile-on and a salsa contest won by Mark Hendricks from the Office of Communications and Marketing. He was awarded a $25 United gift card by a three-judge panel for his entry.

ELF Committee Chair Theresa Fairchild said there are 11 families — including a combined 17 children — who are receiving support this year. If you want to help bring joy to a child this holiday season, please pick a tag from one of the ELF Angel Trees at the following locations: the first-floor information desk in the School of Medicine building; the School of Pharmacy Office of Student Services on the second floor of the Pharmacy Academic Center; the School of Pharmacy Dean’s Office (Suite 104); and the Human Resources Office at 1400 S. Wallace.

If you choose to bless a family this holiday season, your wrapped packages must be received by Dec. 15 at one of these locations: Room B200 (the IT offices) in the basement of the School of Medicine; School of Pharmacy Suite 105A (the Texas Panhandle Poison Center); or Suite 206C (the Department of Pharmacy Practice offices) on the second floor of the main School of Pharmacy building. Please remember to attach your tag to your package or sack so that we can identify the family or child to whom the gift belongs. This also allows the ELF Committee to make sure all tags have been accounted for and all gift wishes have been met.

If you are unable to bring the gift to us, we will gladly come and pick it up and mark your name off the list. Please DO NOT leave the wrapped gifts unattended by the ELF Angel Trees.
