Little Raiders program at MTSU helps area children in need

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. -

Several different organizations at Middle Tennessee State University are joining together to help provide Christmas to area children in need.

The program, Little Raiders, is similar to the Salvation Army's Angel Tree program.

Three Christmas trees have been set up across campus and are decorated tags which include a child's name, gender, age, clothing size and Christmas wish list.

Participants select the numbered tags and register as a Secret Santa for the child.

"They take it off the tree and we have paper work over here for them to fill out. We ask them to have all their gifts back by December 10, "explained Market Coordinator Jenny Crouch

The Little Raiders gift giving campaign focuses on low income families on campus and children whose mothers have suffered domestic violence. This year the program will provide gifts to 32 children.

The program was spearheaded by Sgt. Vergena Forbes with the MTSU Police Department.

"I like to do community service projects and I like to give back to the community," she told Nashville's News 2.

For more information on the Little Raider campaign, contact Sgt. Forbes at 615-898-2424.
