Making Spirits Bright at Marywood University

Our holiday traditions at Marywood are important to us. Each year, we anticipate sharing the spirit of the season together. During this unusual year, we decided to get creative with how and when we celebrate. We invite all students, faculty, and staff to participate in Making Spirits Bright at Marywood University

There are still gifts that need giving! Our Virtual Giving Tree will go a long way toward making spirits bright this season. Sign up for spots to provide gifts valued at $15 for children, seniors, and/or the homeless. Students should return any gifts before leaving for Thanksgiving Break; staff have until December 7 to return gifts. Please help with this worthy effort!

More Bright Ideas and Acts of Kindness are planned! We have a Resource List for Spreading Holiday Cheer, and you can get more information about celebrating cherished traditions in new ways, lifting your spirits with prayer and music, and sharing the joy of season with others in a safe, meaningful manner at our Making Spirits Bright events page. We encourage all members of the Marywood Community to do small acts of kindness this holiday season, either as part of campus efforts or in their own communities, to keep Making Spirits Bright.
