OSTI and Norwood Elementary, holiday buddies for many years

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Scientific and Technical Information (OSTI) brightens the holidays for a number of area school children. Since the early 1990s, staff at OSTI have sponsored an Angel Tree Program for students from Norwood Elementary School. This year, each child in the program had three Angels on the OSTI tree. The wrapped gifts were collected and delivered to the Oliver Springs Angel Tree Ministry which distributes the gifts to the children before the winter break. Earlier in December, OSTI collected food items to be distributed to children for their weekend meals. This long-standing tradition is one way OSTI participates in the local community. OSTI, within the DOE Office of Science and located at 1 Way in Oak Ridge, advances science and sustains technological creativity by making R&D findings available and useable to DOE researchers and to the public.
