Giving Tree

FREMONT — The Fremont Giving Tree is an annual community event at Christmas to help brighten the holidays for Fremont residents in need. This event has been successful over the years because of the generosity of this close-knit community. The gifts distributed have included toys, games, new winter jackets, snow boots, snow pants, hats/gloves/mittens, winter clothing, stocking stuffers, wrapping paper, tapes and bows! Volunteers have also provided gift baskets to some senior residents in need containing gift cards to local stores and gas stations, stationary with stamps, plants, chocolates and many different goodies to make the holiday special.

These economic times continue to be difficult for everyone, but if you are able to help this year, it would be greatly appreciated. There are many ways to help by sponsoring a child, purchasing a toy off his/her list, gift cards, donating wrapping paper or a monetary donation made out to the Peoples UMC Fremont Giving Tree. There is never a gift too small in the eyes of a child on Christmas morning! This event is run solely on the support and donations from community and volunteers.

If you are family that needs some assistance that the Fremont Giving Tree can provide, or you would like to help the Giving Tree by donating, please call Dawn at 603-702-1943.

Please note that the deadline for signing up is Mon., November 18. Please plan ahead as they are on a much tighter deadline for the 2013 program.
