YMCA Holiday Tree

It’s getting to be that time of year again! The holiday season is upon us, and this year the Central Lincoln County YMCA is partnering with local schools and organizations to help families in our community who might need a little extra assistance this Christmas. We are hoping to help spread the word and encourage families who could use some support putting presents under the tree to take part in the YMCA’s Holiday Tree of Giving’s simple!

You can find a one page application in the NCS lobby, at the YMCA, and at other community buildings, or contact me to have one sent through email or regular mail. In this application you fill out information that will help provide each child in your family with up to 4 gifts (2 wants and 2 needs). The YMCA will have these gift requests anonymously hanging as an “ornament” on a tree in their lobby for community members and organizations to take, fulfill and return to the YMCA. Once returned, the YMCA will contact you directly.

All applications to participate in this program will be kept confidential and can be returned to the school or the YMCA. The application deadline is November 29th.

Families who are looking to contribute and help fulfill wishes are encouraged to visit the YMCA lobby for ornaments from the Tree of Giving.
