If you, or someone you know, are in need of gifts for Christmas, please call Theresa at (218) 820-0790 with the following information. All requests have to be in by Friday November 22nd. There are no specific qualifications for this program, but we ask recipients of the "Giving Tree" not be on any other area lists, so all in our community and surrounding communities, who need help, can be helped.

2. First name of children along with their age (0-17) and their gender
3. Wish list of items each child would like
4. Clothing sizes
Gift pick up day will be: Monday, Dec. 16th between 5 -7 p.m. at the Hackensack Chamber of Commerce building. If you are unable to pick up gifts at that time, please call (218) 820-0790 to make other arrangements. A reminder call will be given to all recipients the week before the pickup date.
This year the "Giving Trees" will be located in Hackensack at: Hackensack Do It Best Hardware, Mark's Market, Swanson's Bait, and Southside Fuel Plus and in Backus at the American Legion and Godfrey's. Please find it in your heart to stop in and pick a name off the tree for those less fortunate.

Every Child deserves to have a Merry Christmas! Thank you and God Bless all this Holiday Season.
