RETURN YOUR GIFT:
Please read the instructions on the front and back of the ornament and return your unwrapped gift in a holiday bag (under the Giving Tree) NO LATER THAN DECEMBER 12th.
There has been some concern in the past that certain suggested gifts seemed unusual. It is important to note that many of the individuals on our tree have special circumstances, including: mental illness, physical illness, chemical addictions and abusive situations at home. We thank you for your understanding and sensitivity.
We have committed to delivering a gift to every one of the individuals on the giving tree. Please make sure to return a gift if you take an ornament
When all of the ornaments are taken off our GIVING TREE, it’s time to start bringing in hats, mittens, and scarves to place on the tree. These will be distributed to those in need.
