Jumbo Giving Tree Provides Gifts to Four Local Families

MEDFORD - In cooperation with the Medford Family Network, Tufts Athletics is providing gifts for four families in need this holiday season.

The Athletics Department and the Tufts Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) partnered with the Medford Family Network again this year to coordinate the 3rd Annual Jumbo Giving Tree. Members of the Jumbo community donated gifts that were on the families' wish lists and donated more than $1,000 of gift cards which were delivered to the Medford Family Network last week.

SAAC President Stephanie DiLeo, swimming & diving associate head coach Joe Acquaviva and Tufts Athletics' Civic Life Coordinator Trevena Bennett led the organization of this year's Jumbo Giving Tree.

The Medford Family Network, part of the Medford Public Schools system, is a comprehensive parenting education and family support program serving families since 1994.
