Dear Walpole community:
Thanks to so much generosity from so many people, the 2022 Community Giving Tree provided a brighter holiday season for almost 30 local families and almost 100 local children.
We would like to thank The Congregational Church of Walpole, St. John’s Church, St. Peter’s Church, The Hungry Diner, Spencer’s Place, the Walpole and North Walpole Libraries, Mascoma Bank, and The Savings Bank of Walpole on Westminster Street for displaying tags and collecting gifts. We would like to also thank the “Toys for Tots” program based at The Savings Bank of Walpole in the Shaw’s plaza for providing many extra toys so that parents could choose 2-3 more gifts besides those that they requested. The staff at the Westminster St. Savings Bank of Walpole also provided wrapping paper and tape for the parents. We thank everyone who sent us donations, as we purchased over $600 worth of gifts for tags that were not taken. Finally, we want to thank EVERYONE who chose tags and purchased gifts. A special thanks also to the “Women of Walpole” who chose many tags and purchased many gifts.
This whole project is a perfect example of small town holiday spirit. THANK YOU SO MUCH to all who helped in any way! HAPPY NEW YEAR to you and yours! We hope that 2023 brings you peace, joy, and good health!
Thank you again,
Sincerely,Jeanne Cloues and Marcia WeilGiving Tree Project coordinators
