The Giving Tree

The Giving Tree

Again this year Trinity Lutheran Church is “adopting” local families in need for Christmas. This year our goal is to provide for 25 families through the Salvation Army! Each adopted family will receive a complete Christmas dinner and gifts for each family member.

There are several ways to help this holiday season. Please look forward to the Giving Tree in the Narthex the month of December. More details are listed below For more information please contact the office directly at 360-695-1221. Or Mary Ann Olson at 360-256-4056

Here are several ways you can help:

1. A “Giving Tree” will be up in the Narthex first week in December. Tags on the tree will identify gift items to be purchased for each member of each family. Take a tag, and follow the simple instructions.
2. A list of needed food items will also be placed near the giving tree. Bring as many of these nonperishable grocery items as you can and place them under the tree. Even if you don’t take a gift tag you can still participate in the project by donating food. We need a lot of groceries to feed 25 families.
3. Cash gifts are also welcome. Cash gifts will be used by volunteer shoppers to purchase perishable food items and additional gifts. Please endorse your check to “Trinity Lutheran Church” and designate “Giving Tree” on the memo line.
4. Please keep your Giving Tree turkey in your own home freezer. Bring your turkey to church after Thanksgiving.

If you have questions or would like to help, call Mary Ann Olson at 256-4056, or Sharon Swanson at 225-5653.
