Each winter, Tech the Halls partners with local Boys &
Girls Clubs to host approximately 60 children who come to campus to participate in
holiday activities, including making ornaments and decorating cookies. Then, Tech
the Halls gives each child $100 to spend on a Target shopping trip. The children
can buy presents for their family members or themselves. Each child has two Tech
students as mentors who shop with them. This year's event took place on Dec.
