Holiday cards, letters to aid
U.Va. employees have come up with colorful and creative ways to
support the Commonwealth
of Virginia Campaign while delivering personalized holiday
greetings to families, friends and children.
Bragg, office manager in Student Financial Services, is creating
personalized Santa greetings for children, and Tara Poleski, a
receptionist in the Universitys Development office, is creating
Christmas, Hanukkah and Kwanzaa cards. The two employees donate
their supplies, charge a small fee for each letter or card, and
give the proceeds to a designated charity participating in the
Commonwealth of Virginia Campaign.

glittery holiday stationery. All people have to do is send
me the childs full name and address and indicate the childs
gender, said Bragg. I donate all the materials in
creating and mailing the letters.
each letter Bragg asks that a $5 check made payable to CVC
accompany the order. Requests for Santa letters may be mailed

the CVC. Last year I mailed about 200 letters, but I got
started late in the campaign. This year, I hope to mail lots more.
All the proceeds go to help the community through the CVC.
