SPAC looking for NAU employees to help provide Christmas gifts for local families

The Service Professional Advisory Council (SPAC) is hosting its annual holiday service project. The NAU community is invited to join us in making the holiday of a child in Coconino County a little brighter. SPAC is working with Coconino CASA for Kids, which supports children and youth who have been removed from their homes.

The Giving Tree Program supports abused, neglected and abandoned children, youth, and young adults of Coconino County who have been removed from their homes and are wards of the state. The Giving Tree Program ensures the youth receive a gift so they can experience as normal of a holiday season as possible.

Employees canĀ see the wish list and sign up online for gifts they want to donate.

Children range in age from 1o months old to 17 years old and hope to receive remote control cars, zip-up hoodies, farm animal toys and more .

Donation drop-off options:

– 10 a.m. to noon Dec. 8 at the Eastburn Education Building (#27) north lobby, which can be accessed from P8.

– 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Dec 9 at the Shepherd of the Hills Lutheran Church, 1601 N. San Francisco St.

Contact Erin Kruse at or 928-523-6585 with any questions.
