Library Again Offers Its Holiday "Giving Tree"
PALM HARBOR - For the fourth year in a row, the Palm Harbor Library is partnering with the Haven of Religious Community Services to provide holiday gifts for young victims of domestic abuse. The Haven has set up a "Giving Tree" in the library's lobby which is covered with paper ornaments holding children's wish lists.
"It has been heartwarming to see how generous patrons have been in the past," says Lois Eannel, Assistant Library Director and Head of Youth Services. "Last year, a patron brought in items from SIXTEEN wish lists…and then left his name and number in case there were any children left without a gift. Again this year, a group of coffee drinkers from Honeywell donated part of their coffee klatch money for the children."
Stop by the library to take one or more ornaments and help make a child's holiday a little brighter this year! (Monetary donations will also be accepted.) All UNWRAPPED gifts must be brought to the library by Wednesday, December 19. For further details, contact the Youth Services Department at 727/784-3332, Ext. 206.
