College launches Angel Project

COAST CITIES — For the 26th consecutive year, MiraCosta College students, staff, and community members will have the opportunity to give a local needy child the gift of his or her dreams –– by participating in the college’s Holiday Angel Project.Each child’s first name and wish appears on a paper angel hanging on holiday trees located at each of MiraCosta College’s three campuses. Those who want to buy a gift for a child take an angel from one of the trees, “sign out” the angel with MiraCosta staff, purchase the gift, wrap it using the paper angel as a tag, and return it to the campus.

Holiday Angel trees will be available at these college locations:

— Oceanside Campus, 1 Barnard Drive: in the Student Center Cafeteria, Bldg. 3400. Tree will be available beginning Nov. 25. Gifts must be returned to the Student Activities Office in the Student Center by Dec. 13.

— San Elijo Campus, 3333 Manchester Ave., Cardiff: in the Student Center Cafeteria. Tree is available now. Gifts must be returned to the Student Activities Office at San Elijo by Dec. 2.

— Community Learning Center, 1831 Mission Ave., Oceanside: The tree will be available beginning Nov. 19. Gifts must be returned to the front counter at this location by Dec. 4.
