The Walpole Community Giving Tree Project is getting underway again for the 2022 holiday season.
This project helps families provide holiday gifts for their children ages birth-18 (or older if still in high school). Participating families must be residents of the Walpole township (Walpole, North Walpole, and Drewsville).
We are currently receiving requests from families with the help of the local schools. Now we need to get the requests out to potential “shoppers” in the community who would like to help.
PLEASE MARK YOUR CALENDARS: From NOVEMBER 5-19 only, tags will be available at the following locations during their regular business hours: First Congregational Church (M-F 9-12, go to back door by ramp), the Walpole Library, Spencer’s Place, The Hungry Diner, Savings Bank of Walpole on Westminster St, and Mascoma Bank.
Tags will be attached to a bulletin board. You will fill out your contact information on one half of the perforated tag and leave it in the container. Take the other half of the tag as your “shopping” list, and then attach it very securely to the gift before you return it.
Gifts may be returned to any of the above locations until the last day of November. Gifts should NOT BE WRAPPED.
If you wish to help but do not wish to shop, there are 2 other options. You may choose a tag and leave the whole tag and a donation in an envelope in the tag container, and someone will do the shopping for you. Or, you can just leave a donation to help purchase gifts for tags that are unclaimed. We also hope to provide wrapping paper for the families. Every little bit helps!
This is a wonderful project that helps to brighten the holiday season for many of our local families, and we appreciate everyone’s help!
If you have any questions, you may contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Happy holidays to you and yours! Please stay safe and healthy!
Jeanne Cloues and Marcia Weil, project organizers
