Giving Tree ready to receive donations

Megan Huerta, left, a University of Houston-Victoria graduate student and Student Government Association president, takes some ornaments Monday from Christina Chavarria, a UHV junior and the Jaguar Activities Board vice chair, while decorating the UHV Giving Tree. UHV students, faculty and staff and community members are invited to donate items to benefit four local nonprofit organizations: Devereux Advanced Behavioral Health, Dorothy H. O’Connor Pet Adoption Center, Mid-Coast Family Services and the Old Landmark Committee of Victoria. The Giving Tree runs until Dec. 8, and donation items should be left under the tree in the UHV University Center lobby, 3007 N. Ben Wilson St. A list of needed items for each organization is posted on the SGA website at www.uhv.edu/student-government-association.
