This season consider donating closer to home by giving to fellow employees in need through the NAU Foundation’s Santa’s Sleigh fund.

NAU employees donate to the fund to assist fellow employees who need help acquiring holiday food and gifts for their children. The fund, available yearlong, also supports NAU families suffering personal tragedies. Supervisors nominate recipients. Since it first took off almost 25 years ago, Santa’s Sleigh fund has delivered more than $47,000 in gifts to employees in need.

To donate, use the online giving form, sign up for payroll deduction through LOUIE or write a check to the NAU Foundation, memo line #4936. Cash gifts also are accepted. Drop off your contribution at the NAU Foundation office in Old Main, or mail it to the NAU Foundation, PO Box 4094, Flagstaff, AZ 86011.

For information or to nominate a recipient, contact Don Dufek in Fleet Services at (928) 523-2469.
