Project Love is seeking the community’s support of its 2020 campaign to assist local families by providing Christmas gifts to their children, from birth to 13 years.
First, find the Project Love Giving Trees, one in the Sander’s Markets lobby and the other in Serendipity Consignment Boutique in North East.
Next, select a tag or two and note the children’s wish lists on the tags. Those who take tags from the tree at Serendipity will receive a 10% discount on any purchase in the store.
Purchase toys, crafts, games, etc., and then return the new, unwrapped gift donations with the tags to the Sander’s Markets customer service center or to Serendipity as soon as possible and no later than Sunday, Dec. 6.
Returning the gifts early enables the Project Love folks to sort the items into boxes for each of the children. The boxes will be given to the parents and guardians of North East families who requested Project Love’s assistance.
Each tag taken from the Giving Trees represents one local child whose Christmas will be made brighter thanks to the community’s generosity.
If tags are taken from the Giving Trees and are not returned with gifts by Dec. 6, then Project Love volunteers must quickly purchase age appropriate items before gifts are distributed on Dec. 13.
Project Love strives to provide at least one item on each child’s wish list.
The drive-thru distribution of hundreds of gift boxes for local families will occur on Sunday, Dec. 13, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Project Love, 10093 W. Main Road in North East.
Project Love is grateful to all of the area businesses and individuals who have made generous donations of funds and/or gifts in support of this year’s campaign to help local families have a brighter Christmas.
