Little Bruin Wishes

Little Bruin Wishes is a web-based holiday assistance program which allows the UCLA community to give gifts and support to student families who struggle to fulfill their children’s holiday wish lists. By supporting Little Bruin Wishes, you can relieve some of the stress and financial challenges our parenting students face and help SwD families enjoy a peaceful and festive holiday season!

We have over 50 parenting students who are in-need, and we would love to involve our partners to show their support for our UCLA families.  We invite departments and/or individuals to support Little Bruin Wishes in one of two ways: select a family and purchase gifts from the family’s wish list or make a monetary gift and the staff of the SwD Program will do the shopping!
