“Santas” still needed for OGC Giving Tree
There are still ornaments for the Giving Tree from First Place for Youth requesting gift cards for various stores. There are no specified amounts, but it was suggested that $25 or more would be very much appreciated. The ornaments are at the OGC reception desk. Please sign up and take a corresponding tag and return it to Gloria (8320D) by Wednesday, Dec. 15.
Thank you all for your generous support.

First Place Fund for Youth, recipients of the Annual Giving Tree
The First Place Fund for Youth are the recipients of the annual Giving Tree project. The mission of the First Place Fund is to provide transitional assistance to young people (16-23 years old) leaving foster care programs. Many of these young people are setting up individual households for the first time; others have young families of their own. Some of the services provided by the First Place Fund are: financial management, weekly life skills training, economic literacy training, monthly food vouchers, transportation assistance, etc.
Note: We will have an update on the results of the OGC bake sale in the next Link.
