“GIVING TREE” at Library will again provide gifts for senior citizens
South Davidson Family Resource Center and Denton Public Library
will again share a project for Christmas this year. The “GIVING TREE”, which will focus on helping needy senior
citizens in our community, was a real success in the last few years and we hope it will be really great this year also.
Center and Library personnel feel that at Christmas, so much attention is focused on
children that sometimes older residents are overlooked-either because they are reluctant to request assistance, or don’t
know where to ask.
Applications for placing senior citizens on The Giving
Tree can be submitted November 4th until the cut-off date of December 11th. Sign-up times will be 9AM to 11AM on Monday, Tuesday
and Wednesday at the Resource Center. Information about requesting help can be obtained by calling 859-5399 or by visiting
the Resource Center on West Salisbury Street beside the Library.
“GIVING TREE”, located at the Library, will have ornaments that will be number coded, and have information about
a person including specific needs, but not their name. Individuals and families who would like to “adopt” one
or more of the seniors and provide gifts for them may visit the Library to pick an ornament, beginning Wednesday, November
6th. They will then be responsible for buying needed items and gifts for that person, wrapping the gifts, labeling them with
the number code, and taking the items to the Library during normal operating hours by December 16th. The Library is open Monday
and Thursday from 9 AM to 8 PM; Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday from 9 AM to 5:30 PM; and on Saturdays from 10 AM until 2 PM.
Gifts must be picked up by the recipient at the Library on Friday,
December 20th from 10:00 AM to 12:00 noon.
For more information about
the “GIVING TREE”, or if you have questions, please call the Center at 859-5399.
