Giving Drive

Our annual Giving Drive event occurs during the winter quarter at UCSC. Throughout the program, SVC delivers hundreds of gifts to children at the Jesus Mary & Joseph Home, Walnut Avenue Family & Women’s Center, Pajaro Valley Shelter, and UCSC Family Student Housing. For Giving Drive 2019, SVC will place trees and strings of lights around campus filled with ornaments with these children’s wish lists. Students, faculty, and staff can adopt one or more ornaments. Community participation in the Giving Drive program has helped brighten the spirits of these children during the holiday season.

Giving Drive 2019 will be held this November through December, exact dates TBA. SVC thanks the following campus locations for hosting ornaments and trees this year:

  • Hahn Student Services/ Dean of Students
  • Scotts Valley Center
  • Kerr Hall
  • UCSC Police Department
  • Bay Tree Bookstore
  • Health Center
  • Jack Baskin
  • Engineering 2
  • Silicon Valley Extension
  • Coastal Science Campus / Center for Ocean Health
