Thanks to the Edmonds Community, the Giving Tree Program Was A Great Success!
Thank you to all who participated in the Giving Tree Program sponsored by the City of Edmonds and in cooperation with Volunteers of America. 300 tags were selected from the Giving Trees representing gift requests by needy seniors and children. Over the last few weeks, cheerful participants brought in loads of brightly wrapped gifts to City sites. Volunteers of America has retrieved all of the gifts and will distribute them over the next few days, just in time for the holidays. Thank you for helping to make this program a success and blessing so many people in need. Happy Holidays!
