Thank you to everyone who participated in the Giving Tree Program this year! It was a HUGE success. I am so grateful for the outpouring of support. From set-up, monetary donations, gifts, wrapping, and delivery, you gave it all. Special thanks to Silvia McClung, Lucia Faithfull, Debra Valpey, and Carol Sandoval for assisting throughout the program. We delivered the gifts to Mark Twain Elementary School on Monday and the response was incredible. Here is some of the feedback we received from the school counselors:
“I am overwhelmed with gratitude. Thank you so much for your kindness and generosity!”
“We are so lucky to have such amazing community partners. What a blessing for our school to have your support!”
“Thank you for bringing this wonderful program to our families at Mark Twain! There is such a great need here.”
Again, thank you all! Along with the gifts on the tags, $500 of gift cards were donated to families for a holiday meal or additional gifts!
