Plans are underway to begin our Giving Tree program that
helps numerous charitable organizations in our local area.
In case you are not familiar with this program, which is in its
10th year, please read the simple explanation that follows.
Christmas trees are put up in community centers and local
businesses throughout our area. These host businesses
are listed with their addresses so you can go to the one
nearest your home. The ornaments have items listed that
the charitable organizations are in need of and are wishing
for this holiday season. You only have to go and choose an
ornament, shop for the item(s) listed on the ornament, then
bring it back unwrapped with the ornament attached.
The Giving Trees will be up at their locations on Monday,
December 2 and will stay up until December 24.
The following area charitable organizations
that will be helped this year are:
Beds-Plus Care (homeless shelters and services)
Family Shelter Services (domestic abuse)
Hope’s Door (underprivileged and homeless
Soaring Eagle Academy (school for autistic
Teens For Xcellence (foster academic success)
