This week marks the beginning of Trees of Sharing 2013. The community-wide Trees of Sharing program is a special way that Grand Coulee Dam area residents may anonymously bless local children who might not otherwise receive a gift this Christmas season. Names of children may be submitted on wish slips and dropped into collection boxes located at Safeway, Coulee Medical Center, and Harvest Foods.
“Trees of Sharing” is specifically for children residing in the Grand Coulee Dam area. School age children must be enrolled in the Grand Coulee Dam School District. Children’s names will be collected through November 13. Following the name collection, trees with ‘ornament tags’ will be placed at selected locations in the community by November 22.
Please call Linda Black, 633-3611, to volunteer with Trees of Sharing. There are opportunities to organize, shop, wrap, and deliver gifts.
