Giving Trees: Pick up a tree 11/26 – 11/28

Help sponsor a local child whose family cannot afford to buy presents for the holiday season through the Giving Trees program, in collaboration with the local organization HOPE (Helping Overcome Poverty’s Effects).
Here’s how:

• You can sponsor a tree by yourself, with a friend, as a department or in any other way you create

• To try to ensure equity among children in the same family, we ask that you consider spending a minimum amount of $50 per tree – but please don’t let this discourage you from participating! We strongly encourage you to team up with friends and co-workers to maximize the fun and impact of each Giving Tree!

• Do NOT wrap gifts. Please make sure that all the gifts belonging to a tree are together in one bag, unwrapped and unmarked.

You can pick up a tree (paper cut-out) from Civic Engagement programs in the Center for Education in Action (Adirondack House Rm. 210, upstairs, follow signs) on Monday, November 26th, Tuesday November 27th or Wednesday, November 28th between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m.! The tree will have all the information you need: the age and gender of the child/adult, what his/her clothing needs are, and a wish he/she has.

• Gifts must be brought back to the Center for Education in Action on Monday, December 10th between 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.

If you have any questions, please e-mail
