ANNAPOLIS, Md. - The U.S. Naval Academy kicked off their annual Giving Tree program with a lighting ceremony on Tuesday.
The event happened at Bancroft Hall.
Academy midshipmen from the sixth company, elementary teachers and students from the Naval Primary School, and alumni helped decorate the annual giving tree.
The Academy received more than 700 paper angel ornaments for the tree. Each ornament includes the name, age, and a gift suggestion for a local child in need.
Throughout the campaign academy staff, faculty, and midshipmen will then select an ornament and buy a present for that child.
The Academy’s Giving Tree collection runs from November 27 through December 10.
