From left, Levi Kopperud, Avery Fahl and Felix Kelsey decorate the Tree of Hope Thursday morning at Southwest Minnesota State University. The three are from the SMSU daycare center. The Non-Traditional Student Organization and SMSU are once again sponsoring the Tree of Hope through Dec. 12. Community members can choose a paper ornament with a child's name from the tree located by the Dean's office (Library Plaza). Buy an item (suggested cost is $5-$10) and bring the wrapped gift, with the paper ornament taped to the outside, to BA 269 (Dean's office) no later than Dec. 12. The NTSO will also accept monetary donations. To make a donation, contact Deb Carrow, IL 161 ext. 7286 or Amy Nemitz, IL 162 ext. 7376.
