Trees of Sharing boxes are out in area

Trees of Sharing 2020 is here to help struggling families provide a Christmas gift for their children. Since the early 1980’s, the Trees of Sharing program has been a pathway for Grand Coulee Dam area residents to be a blessing to needy children living in the area.

If you know a family with children under age 18 and living in the Coulee as far north as Belvedere that could use some help, please take time to fill out Trees of Sharing slips for their children. The slips and collection boxes are located at Safeway, Coulee Family Medicine, and Harvest Foods. (Note that school-age children must be enrolled in the Grand Coulee Dam School District to be eligible.) The names will be coded, put on ornaments, and available the week before Thanksgiving so gift-giver residents can fulfill the wishes of the children.

The schedule:

• November 2 – November 17: Children’s names may be submitted on ‘wish’ slips and placed in decorated collection boxes at Safeway Pharmacy, Coulee Medical Center, or Harvest Foods.

• November 20 – December 11: Trees decorated with ornament tags with children’s wishes available at North Cascades Bank, Safeway Pharmacy, Coulee Dam Federal Credit Union, and Harvest Foods. Please pick up a tag & fill the wish.

• Monday, December 14: All gifts, wrapped and with tags attached to the outside of the package, must be returned to a ‘Tree’ location so they can be organized for delivery.

• Saturday, December 19, 10:00 – 11:00 a.m: Trees of Sharing delivery of gifts

Please call Linda Black, 633-3611, to volunteer with Trees of Sharing. There are opportunities to organize, shop, wrap, and deliver gifts.
