Giving Trees

841 gifts were given to 383 children and 458 adults from tags placed on 22 Giving Trees located throughout Stark County. Recipients were from many agencies, nursing homes, daycare centers, as well as mentally and physically challenged children and adults. Each child received a toy, clothing, and a book, while each adult received a gift or lap quilt plus lotion. We’d like to thank all who took a tag and purchased gifts; The Canton Repository for printing the tags; Books-A-Million for graciously donating many books; our 13 volunteers and drivers who gave us over 343 hours of their time; and our Giving Tree location sites, especially Belden Village Mall and the North Canton YMCA who kept calling for more tags. This year we even received some extra gifts and clothing, which we gave to the Giving Center and St. Stephen Martyr Lutheran Church to supplement the gifts needed for their Breakfast with Santa.
