What is the Giving Tree? For some families in our community, purchasing gifts during the holidays is challenging. The Giving Tree is an annual opportunity to purchase gifts for a family in our community, coordinated by the Family Support Committee and Ms. Cho, our school counselor. Beginning November 29th, we will be taking donations through Venmo that will go toward purchasing gift cards and books. Once all funds are collected, the Family Support Committee lead, Genny Costin, will purchase the gift cards and deliver to Ms. Cho for distribution along with a wrapped book for each child.
This year, our goal is to provide each family with a $100 grocery card, each child a $100 Target gift card and a grade appropriate book recommended by our librarian, Ms. Young. There are 17 confirmed families this year, so we are hopeful to provide each family and child the designated amounts! Some families have more than one child, so the Target goal will be higher than the grocery card goal.
