“GIVING TREE” at Library will again provide gifts for senior citizens
South Davidson Family Resource Center and Denton Public Library will again share
a Christmas project this year! The “GIVING TREE”, which focuses on helping provide gifts for senior citizens
in our community during the holiday season.
Applications for placing
senior citizens on The Giving Tree can be submitted October 31st until the cut-off date of December 3rd. Sign-up times will
be 8:30AM to 11:30AM on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday at the South Davidson Family Resource Center. Information about requesting
help can be obtained by calling (336) 859-5399 or by visiting the Resource Center at 338 West Salisbury Street, beside the
The “GIVING TREE”, located at the Denton Library,
will have ornaments that will be number coded, instead of using names, and have information about a person including specific
needs. Individuals and families who would like to “adopt” one or more of these seniors and provide gifts for
them may visit the Library to pick an ornament, beginning Thursday, November 5th. They will then be responsible for buying
needed items and gifts for that senior, wrapping the gifts, labeling them with the number code, and taking the items to
the Library during normal operating hours by December 13th. 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 Saturday, Dec 15th from 10:30 AM to 12:00PM. We will
also be having light refreshments during this time.
For more information about the “GIVING
TREE”, or if you have questions, please call the South Davidson Family Resource Center at (336) 859-5399.
