The sign in the HSC atrium by the staircase reads simply “Holiday Assistance.” The sign is small, but the impact can be great. One grateful student family whose name was pulled from the box last year expressed thanks this way: “You are a blessing and the timing could not be more perfect.”
Names of student families who could use a special blessing this year should be placed in the box as candidates for gifts donated by friends of NOBTS. Each year the donations vary in size and type and may be gift cards, travel expense reimbursement, or other items.
“Anybody can nominate anyone they feel needs help,” said Michael Wang, Financial Aid director.
Submissions will be accepted now through December 7. The Office of Financial Aid will distribute the gifts as they come in among the student families nominated.
Churches, businesses or individuals wishing to donate may email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you notes from other past recipients carried these messages:
“We are constantly amazed at how God has used so many wonderful people to bless our family.”
“Thank you for listening to God’s call to give so sacrificially. God has used you to prove his incredible provision no matter the need.”
