Holidays for Little Huskers is a program providing gifts and personal items to the children of current UNL students during the winter holiday season - at no cost to parents and guardians.

UNL students submit information about their children/dependents and are subsequently matched with a gift donor. Arrangements for gift drop-off and pickup are coordinated by the Gender and Sexuality Center staff.

2024 Information is available now.
