Holiday Party: Joy to GW
GW faculty and staff are invited to celebrate the holiday season at the annual GW Holiday Party. Mark your calendars for a joyful afternoon featuring gingerbread house decorating, karaoke, hot food stations, photo booth fun and more!
If you require accommodations to attend either event, please email [email protected].
Opportunities for Giving: Joy from GW
Charitable initiatives have long been a part of our holiday celebrations at GW. Faculty and staff will have the opportunity to give back at the holiday parties by participating in the following charitable initiatives:
Holiday Cards for Military Community Members and First Responders - GW’s Military and Veteran Services (MVS) is sponsoring a letter writing campaign for the holidays. Faculty and staff can write a letter to a deployed service member, veteran, recruit graduate, first responder or a wounded hero & their caregiver. All deserve to be thanked for their service.
Donation Drive for The Store - The Store, GW's food pantry, provides food to over 500 members of the GW community who are food insecure. Faculty and staff can contribute to The Store by donating these suggested items:
Healthy canned goods, pasta and other non-perishables
Bath items such as soap, deodorant, shampoo, etc.
Aldi gift cards that will go towards weekly produce runs at Aldi
There will be collection bins at both the VSTC and Foggy Bottom holiday parties.
The Desk/Door Decorating Contest:
Back by popular demand! Spread holiday cheer and show off your creative talents for the chance to win a pizza party for your team. Decorate your desk or office door for the holidays and upload a photo to the submission page by Monday, December 9th at 5:00 p.m. Faculty and staff will have the opportunity to vote for the most festive desk online and at the VSTC and Foggy Bottom Holiday Parties.
