Each year, the Office of the Chaplain assists Wake Forest staff, faculty, and contract workers who need additional funds to provide traditional holiday meals and gifts for their family through the Holiday Assistance Program. In 2022, over 160 individuals and families were able to make the season bright for themselves and their families through the program.
