“GIVING TREE” at Library will again provide gifts for senior citizens 2014  
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.

Applications for placing senior citizens on The Giving Tree can be submitted November 3rd until the cut-off date of December 10th. Sign-up times will be 9AM to 11AM on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday at the Resource Center.

The “GIVING TREE”, located at the Library, will have numbered ornaments with 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.  They will then be responsible for buying needed items wrapping the gifts, labeling them with the number code, and taking the items to the Library during normal operating hours by December 18th. 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, December 20th from 10:30 AM to 12:30 PM. 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 Center at 859-5399.
