Coordinating the program is John Stoltzenburg, student activities
director, who says he thinks it is a wonderful way to celebrate the
"Our students are always looking for ways to get involved with
our community," Stoltzenburg said. "This is a perfect way for kids
to come in for a couple hours, give Mom and Dad a break, and get
some help with creating a Christmas gift for their loved ones."
Lincoln College students Danielle Stanley of Dolton, a sophomore,
and freshman Jaydeh Sleh of South Holland came up with the idea to
do the program. Both are members of the Student Activities Council
at Lincoln College and are constantly looking for ways to enhance
their collegiate experience.
"We both have experience working with children and figure it's a
great way to interact and make something in the process," said
Stanley. "I'm studying education courses, and this program will give
me valuable experience relating to children," she said.
The program is free, but space is limited for only 20 children.
Registration is required in order to have enough supplies on hand.
Call Stoltzenburg at 732-3155, ext. 327, before the registration
deadline of Dec. 4.
