Sometimes unexpected life circumstances can make the Holiday season hard for colleagues who may be struggling to provide gifts for their children.

With the USF Community Giving Tree, employees in need can discreetly submit their children's gift wish lists and fellow USF employees have the opportunity to sponsor one or more children from the Giving Tree.

Help us make the season special for all of our USF families within the employee community by participating in the annual USF Community Giving Tree program!
