Share the joy of the true meaning of Christmas by participating in our Christmas Giving Tree Project for local children in need.

Each year students, staff, and faculty come together to join in this campus-wide project that gives back to our community. These giftcards are distributed by Catholic Charities to families in need throughout the Greater Manchester area.

Christmas Trees with gift tags are located in the first floor of Alumni Hall, the entrance to the Abbey Church, and the Office of Campus Ministry.

Please return gifts to Campus Ministry by Wednesday, December 12 with gift tag attached.

Only accepting giftcards.

  • Our Anselmian Giving Tree

    Catholic Charities does not have the staff to do individual family intakes this year for our giving tree. What they can do is offer families a gift card for Christmas dinner and toys for children. Saint Anselm has agreed to offer needy families the dignity to buy their own gifts for their children this Christmas.

    Trees are located in Alumni Hall, Saint Anselm Abbey and the Student Center. 

  • Look Out For Green Tags

    Our service learners at Girls Inc. asked the girls what they wanted for Christmas, expecting answers like dolls and Legos, but no, they just asked for shoes without holes so their feet did not get wet. In true Anselmian fashion, our students agreed to help make their wish come true!
