MILTON-FREEWATER - Businesses, services and schools are sponsoring a "Giving Tree," at Baker Boyer Bank, 320 N. Columbia St.
The Giving Tree will help local families experience Christmas joy and will go up Nov. 25. The tree will be decorated with tags that list ages, sizes and needs of children facing an uncertain Christmas.
People can choose tags and buy new items from the listed needs. The unwrapped items will be returned to Baker Boyer Bank and later distributed to the families.
Cash donations will also be accepted. The deadline for unwrapped gift return is Dec. 13. For details call Heidi Zeigler at 541-966-0908 or Lolly Torres at 541-938-6627, ext. 223.
