HOLIDAY GIVING TREES AND FUNDS

NEWPORT
NCC GIVING TREE:
The Newport Cultural Center is sponsoring its annual Community Giving Tree. Area organizations and civic leaders have provided the names of children and senior citizens in the community whom they know need extra help this holiday season. Members of the community who would like to help out can select a tag from the tree, which will list the age of the gift recipient and the item needed. The children and senior citizens giving trees are located at the Newport Cultural Center. The gifts may be dropped off at the NCC, preferably unwrapped in gift bags. The goal is to give every child in the program at least one toy, in addition to the clothing or other items they need. Donations of gift wrap and bows are greatly appreciated. All gift donations should be received by Friday, December 14th. Contact 368-5074 for more information.
PALMYRA
COMMUNITY GIVING TREE:
The Palmyra Community Center Boosters are again sponsoring the Christmas Giving Tree for Children 18 years of age and younger. Residents in need are encouraged to apply at the Town Office. The deadline for completed applications is Monday, December 10th. Donations will also be greatly appreciated.
