Silverton’s Tree of Giving in Full Swing

December 2022 Posted in Community, Events & Holidays

For the 24th year, the GFWC Silverton Zenith Women’s Club (a charitable 501(c)(3) organization) is sponsoring the “Tree of Giving,” a project dedicated to assuring that underprivileged children living in our community enjoy gifts during the holiday season.

These trees can be found at the following Silverton locations: Hi-School Pharmacy, Wilco, Immanuel Lutheran Church, St. Paul Catholic Church, and Silver Creek Fellowship.

Each tree has tags with clothing sizes for a qualified child within the Silver Falls School District. Willing helpers are asked to pick a tag and shop for new clothing items (sizes and suggestions are listed on tags). The items should be wrapped and returned to one of the drop off locations listed on the tags, by Friday, Dec. 9. Wilco is not a drop off site.

Please attach the tags securely to the gifts. No toys are needed as the community and fire department provide those. From a survey conducted a few years ago, parents indicated that they wanted to see what toys were being given to children. Therefore, the organizers decided not to have the community help wrap toys, as in past years.

Monetary donations may be mailed to Silverton Zenith Women’s Club, P. O. Box 1273, Silverton, OR 97381.

Please consider helping the Silverton Zenith Women’s Club with this community project.
