CARBONDALE, IL (KFVS) -

The Women's Center and the University Mall is partnering up to benefit women and children in the Southern Illinois area.

The Gift of Christmas Tree is a program designed to bring joy and cheer to children and women served by the Women's Center. The tree will be located near the guest service center between Ulta beauty and Shoe dept.

Sponsors will be able to select a card from the tree, purchase a gift based on the information written on the card and deliver the unwrapped gift to the Women's Center. Card pickup will begin on November 18.

“Please come by the mall to select a card from the Gift of Christmas Tree. It’s a simple and fun way to partner with the Women’s Center to brighten Christmas for a child or woman in need,” University Mall Marketing Manager Christi Vineyard said.

All donations are to be dropped off by December 14 at the Women's Center Administration Office Monday through Friday between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. located at 610 S Thompson St. to allow for distribution to clients of the Women's Center. Donations of gift wrap, ribbons and cards for clients of the Women's Center to send out will also be accepted.

“We will accept items right up until Christmas, as there will certainly be new clients who come in after the December 14th deadline,” Women’s Center Development Specialist Sandra Ursini said.
