Santa Claus Girls: Friendships old and new

Dec. 21, 2017; MLive

Volunteers for the Santa Claus Girls often talk about the camaraderie at the charity’s headquarters, where hundreds of people are united in a common cause. They say many friendships are forged over the sorting, wrapping, packaging and routing of gifts for needy children.

… For (Linda) Stewart, a retired nursing professor at Grand Rapids Community College, volunteering offers her a way to continue serving children in need of help. When she worked as a nursing professor, one of her assignments was in pediatric nursing.

… It’s also a place where volunteers can reconnect with old friends, sometimes in surprising ways. Stewart and a fellow nursing professor from GRCC, Edith Miller, were once carrying on a conversation around a corner from each other without realizing they were talking to someone they already knew. Surrounded by mountains of packages, volunteers might be able to hear their fellow workers, but not necessarily see them.

Update to Drupal 8 migration

In an effort to better support the work of our web editors going into the winter semester, we have rescheduled the Drupal 8 migration to take place at the end of January.

Web users will see slight changes in the font and appearance of the navigation menus found in the left-hand sidebar, but this upgrade is really intended to enhance web editors’ current toolset and add features that will help them manage their content workflow.

Training will be offered as scheduled in January. If you would like to sign up for a training session, please register through Staff Development. If you have any questions or comments, please contact
