Giving for the children Program brings Christmas to all By Isaac Christensen correspondent I The Signpost As Christmas nears, the Weber State University Comrnunity Involvement Center has partnered with the Salvation Army's Angel Tree program to bring gifts to children whose parents express a need. "We have our tree here in the Atrium with all of our angels hanging on it," said Michelle Hall, service vice president for the WSU Student Association. "Each angel represents a child that's from here in Ogden that belongs to a family that can't afford to provide Christmas for them." The Angel Tree is located in the Shepherd Union Atrium on the Ogden campus. The large Christmas tree is covered in slips of paper attached by red bows. The papers contain a call to "put a SMILE on a child's face this Christmas by supporting the Salvation Army Angel Tree program." It lists the first name of a child, their age, sex, shirt, pant and shoe size, along with a need and a want the child has. "Whoever adopts an angel is just committing to provide a gift to them for Christmas," Hall said. "They're not committing to providing all of those things, but just one of those things. If they want to do more, then that's great." Tustin, 7, needs pants and wants Tech Decks. One of these miniature skateboards costs around $4 at Walmart, and a set of four costs around $13. "One girl came in wanting to buy a Barbie doll for a little girl," said Ashley lensen, an intern for the Community Involvement Center. "They basically buy the gift for that child and then they bring it back to us, and we distribute those gifts back to the Salvation Army, who is the sponsor of it, and they give the gift to the child. The goal is to take care of everyone on the tree. Today is the first day that the tree went up. We have 200 angels and so far we've already, from when I was sitting over there on my last count, we've already done 110."

"There's so much strength and emotional depth in this particular edition that has to do with family," Hill said. "The trials of family. People going to jail, people suffering from family trauma and writing about it, people suffering from losing a lifelong love." Hill said Epiphany delivers a range of life perspective because of the age and experience of its authors. One entry that particularly impressed Hill and Epiphany's review board explored the meaning of Sept. 11 without the cliche usually accompanying the mountain of literature written about the event. "The description in it is amazing," Hill said. "She describes the Twin Towers as a ballerina up on point." submission. "It was very fulfilling, because you do a lot of different writing and you never know if anyone is going to recognize or appreciate it," Merrill said. Merrill's poem was one of 13 published in this edition of Epiphany.

|Description||Weber's current student newspaper, the Signpost, first appeared on September 29, 1937. For two years prior to that time, campus news was disseminated via announcements posted on a bulletin board known as the "Signpost". As a result, the masthead of the first issue of the paper itself featured a rudimentary wooden sign with the title spelled out in rustic-looking letters. Over the years the paper has been published continuously, though the look, size and style has changed several times.|
