Giving Trees

869 gifts were given to 451 seniors and 411 children from tags placed on 20 Giving Trees located throughout Stark County.  Recipients were from many agencies, nursing homes, day care centers and head start programs, 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.  We’d like to thank all who took a tag and purchased gifts; The Canton Repository for printing the tags; Books-A-Million for providing books for all the children; our 20 volunteers and drivers who gave us over 340 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, which we gave to the Giving Center.
