Help to make a child’s wish come true this holiday season by adopting a wish from a preschool student from the New Brunswick community!
Winter Wishes helps to give over 300 New Brunswick pre-school children gifts their families may not be able to provide in celebration for the holiday season. A member of the Rutgers community “adopts” each child’s wish to create a personal holiday experience. The children will also be invited to a holiday event to remember with activities, games, and to receive their gifts.
1. Register online October 31 – November 13 (Group and Individual):
or at one of our tabling locations starting October 31 to adopt a child’s wish!
Wednesday, October 31 College Ave Student Center 12-4PM
Monday, November 5 Douglass Student Center 12-4PM

Wish adoption registration is open until Friday, November 17!
2. After registering, you will be matched with a child and purchase gifts for them based on their top three wants and top three needs. This may include toys and games, but the children will often need basic essentials like clothing and winter gear. We ask that you spend a maximum amount of $20 per child.
3. Drop of your gift at Douglass Student Center, Trayes Hall on Tuesday, November 27 between 7:00PM-10:00PM.
