The Christmas wishes of 138 children from 52 local families are on the Trees of Sharing this year.

The Trees of Sharing is a well-established, community-wide program sponsored by local churches whose purpose, they say, is to "bless Grand Coulee Dam Area children at Christmastime."

Area residents are encouraged to purchase a gift based on the information given on the ornaments (suggested value approximately $20 per gift.)

Trees are located in Safeway Pharmacy, North Cascades Bank, Coulee Dam Federal Credit Union and Harvest Foods.

Those participating are asked to get their wrapped gift, with the paper ornament securely attached to the outside of the package, to any Trees of Sharing tree. Gifts need to be placed under the tree by Dec. 13 so they can be sorted and prepared for delivery on Saturday, Dec. 19.

For more information, call Linda Blac at 633-3611, or Mary Ann Boll at 633-0305.
