Office of Student Leadership and Engagement


Adopt-A-Family is a great opportunity to shop for a local family in need of assistance for their Thanksgiving meal; we work in conjunction with St. Mary's Tileston Social Outreach in downtown Wilmington. Individual, organization, office, department, or family donations are welcome!
