Songs of the Season, a holiday event at The University of Texas at Austin, traditionally brings together students, faculty and staff to celebrate the holiday season and the generosity of people who have contributed to the university’s Orange Santa gift program.
Songs of the Season, held this year on Dec. 3, featured choral organizations from the Butler School of Music and the Tower Singers, a staff organization. In preparation for the Holiday Store, Orange Santa and many volunteers were present to accept donations and fill a replica of the university Tower with toys.
The annual event concluded this year’s Orange Santa donation drive.
Orange Santa began in 1994 as a program to foster a more caring university environment by providing help for members of the university community who have special needs during the holiday season.
