The Season of Giving

If you are able, Please consider donating to any of the local Giving Trees or Donation drop spots!

By MacKID Bridgewater- Danielle Romano November 30, 2023

Each year we participate in giving back to our community especially during the holiday season. We try to teach our children the importance of being generous and kind to others and that some families need a little extra holiday cheer. They each get to pick a tag off of the Giving Tree as well as help with choosing the items to donate.

If you do not know, A Giving Tree in some communities, is a tree full of names of children, teens, adults, or families that need our help! The tags will usually indicate a name, age, and a wish or necessity gift idea. First you choose the tag or tags. Then once you have your gifts you can drop them off back at the Giving Tree or Donation Drop spots.

Listed below are a handful of ways to help families in our community. If you are able, Please consider donating to any of the local Giving Trees or Donation drop spots!
