Annual Giving Tree Accepting Donations
Christmas may only be 65 days away, but donations for our Annual Giving Tree are due in just 43 days! Our Annual Giving Tree project provides our program participants with a special gift during the holiday season. Many of these older adults and individuals with disabilities have limited informal support from family and friends and are so grateful when they open up their gift. Monetary donations, Meijer, and Wal-Mart gifts cards ($20 or $25 amounts) must be mailed or delivered to our office (3215 Eaglecrest Drive NE, Grand Rapids, MI 49525) by December 3rd. Thank you so much for thinking of our clients this holiday season!
