What is the SUS Angel Tree?

The SUS Angel Tree Program gives students, faculty, and administrators at UFV an opportunity to make the holiday season special for the children of UFV students. Many UFV students who have children face financial challenges – books, tuition, and living expenses – that can make the holiday season a stressful time. If you are a registered UFV student with unmet financial needs and with children, you can apply to have the gift wishes of your child or children donated by members of the UFV community.




How does the SUS Angel Tree work?

If you are a PARENT or GUARDIAN, fill out an online application form or:

  • Student Union Society Office, Abbotsford Campus Room S1109
  • UFV Financial Aid Office, Chilliwack Campus: Room A1318
  • UFV Financial Aid Office, Abbotsford Campus: Room B214
*Please review the requirements to qualify for this program.

On the form, you will be asked to provide the gift wish of each child. The gift wish will be placed on an Angel which is hung from the Angel tree from November 22nd to December 6th. Members of the UFV community will be invited to choose an “Angel” and to purchase the gift wish written on the Angel. Parents and guardians will be notified between December 1 and 7th if a member of the UFV community has donated the requested gift and the parent or guardian can pick up the gift on December 12th or 13th.

If you wish to be a SUPPORTER of the SUS Angel Tree Program and donate a gift, visit the Angel Tree locations – Student Union Building, Abbotsford Campus and CEP Rm. A1422, Chilliwack Campus – select an Angel from the tree, and register your intention to donate by email (SUSangeltree@ufvsus.ca), phone 604-864-4613), or in person at the SUS office.

Sponsor the Angels

Families are the core of our community. Change starts with everyone helping what they can where they can. Sponsor a child from your UFV Community.

We post Angel Cards on the tree located in the Atrium of the Student Union Building on the Abbotsford Campus and in the Atrium of Building A on the Chilliwack Campus, with each Angel Card representing a child and their gift wish.

The UFV Community Sponsors these families by picking up the Angel Cards and giving the child on the card their holiday wishes.

How to help:

  1. Pick up an Angel from the Angel Trees located on the SUB Atrium and at the CEP A Building Atrium
  2. Register your Angel with the SUS by calling 604 855 5885 or by emailing susangeltree@ufvsus.ca
  3. Purchase the Angel’s wish listed on your Angel’s Card
  4. Bring your unwrapped gifts to the SUS Office (S1109) by December 6th, 2017
