Thanks to the generosity of University Relations, Development and Alumni Relations staff members, one family in the Ozarks will have a very Merry Christmas.
The family, which includes five children, was featured as story #14 in the Springfield News-Leader Share Your Christmas series. The children’s wishes were practical and few. Each will receive everything they asked for on their list, and then some.
Thank you to all who donated, shopped and Shared Your Christmas! Here are the items each child received. We hope they find wearing their BearWear as an inspiration to become a Bear when they grow up!
