The Community Angel “Giving Tree”

The Community Angel “Giving  Tree” project helps  bring a little more spirit of the season to those in our area who are less fortunate and may not be remembered with a gift at Christmas. This drive focuses on warm clothing and personal items instead of toys which are available from the local toy drive. Coats are also provided from a drive by Hope Methodist Church. The “Giving Tree” project is sponsored by individual and employee contributions; it is not sponsored by any church or church group.

Trees in Blue Earth will be located at Wal-Mart and the downtown mini-mall from Noverber 9th through December 9th. Angels (with gift suggestions) will be hung on the trees for you to select. Additional information regarding the gifts will be posted by the trees.

In 2010, 258 gifts were distributed through this project thanks to the generous donations of those who selected angels and bought gifts or made monetary donations. Monetary donations may be sent to: Terry Classon, 8488 377th Ave, Blue Earth, MN 56013.

If you wish to help, the gifts will be wrapped on December 13th at 6:30 at St. Paul Lutheran Chruch’s basement in Blue Earth. Since it is a community project, bring a friend!

Please help make this project a success again this year!
