Giving Tree Brightens the Holidays
Every year a Christmas tree brightens the Remick Heritage Center lobby and the holiday season for Headstart children.
The "Giving Tree" is adorned with ornaments listing the names, clothing sizes, and gift wishes of area Head Start students. Faculty, staff and community patrons of the arts select one or more ornaments and place the wrapped gifts back under the Giving Tree before Friday, December 3.
Performing arts faculty and staff, the sponsors of the gift tree, recommend that purchases be limited to around $15 and one or two gifts per ornament. The limitations allow more children to realize their holiday wishes.
"There was a wonderful response to last year's tree. We hope
people will help to make the holidays brighter for some area children,"
Fran Groves, Heritage Center office associate, said. For more information, call
