Photos: Redbirds give back for the holidays

The holidays are a busy time for Illinois State students, who squeeze in finals week between Thanksgiving and a month-long winter break.

Yet Redbirds still made time to give back during the holiday season, on campus and across Bloomington-Normal. Student organizations raised money for charitable organizations and created holiday cards. Redbird student-athletes visited children, entertained classrooms, and organized a blood drive. Illinois State musicians performed for the community.

And that’s just scratching the surface. Here are some of our favorite photos that show #RedbirdsCare this holiday season.
