Operation SAnta at B.U.

Some Binghamton University students are spreading Christmas cheer.
Some Binghamton University students are spreading Christmas cheer.

For the 24th year, the Student Association is mounting its Operation SAnta campaign. Guidance counselors at the seven Binghamton Elementary schools suggest needy families and provide wish lists. Then, student groups and professional departments purchase gifts ranging from toys to clothes to even a set of chairs so one family can sit and eat dinner together. Today, students and staff took over the Mandela Room on campus for a wrapping party.

"I'm overwhelmed, I'm humbled. This is incredible. And it's so nice to have everybody here wrapping together. It kind of makes you feel in the holiday spirit," said senior Francesca Lucia.

The school district delivers the presents to the families in time for Christmas.
