Wish Upon A Star 2020

Virtual Gift Drive 2020

Date: October 22, 2020 - December 4, 2020

Event Information

The University Union sponsors an annual gift drive each Fall that benefits Sunburst Projects, an organization that creates safe and supportive communities and provides resources for children, youth and families living with HIV/AIDS in Sacramento.

Typically, a heartwarming display of stars with children’s wishes, ranging from newborns to 18 year olds, is set-up from mid-November thru early December in the University Union’s main lobby each year. All faculty, staff, students and community members are invited to pick a star(s) with a wish, purchase the gift and return the gift prior to the due date.

COVID is stopping a lot of things, but it won’t stop us from giving. We can still make a child’s wish come true this holiday season!

You can help in the following ways this holiday season:

  1. Purchase from Sunburst’s Amazon Wish List. Please make sure to choose as your shipping address: Sunburst Projects c/o Diana Pretzlaff's Gift Registry Address.
  2. Purchase gift cards for any of the following locations.
    Raley’s/Bel Air

    Gift cards can be mailed to:

    Sunburst Projects
    c/o Diana Pretzlaff
    2143 Hurley Way, Suite 240

  3. Donate cash virtually www.sunburstprojects.org   

Please plan to have all donations arrive no later than December 4, 2020.
