Mesa County Libraries and Grand Valley Catholic Outreach are working together to help local families in need during the holidays. Giving Trees decorated with gift requests from underprivileged Mesa County residents of all ages will be at the Central Library in Grand Junction and library branches in Clifton, Collbran, Fruita, Orchard Mesa, and Palisade now through Dec. 9, 2017.
Using a Giving Tree is easy. To help someone in need this holiday, stop by a participating Mesa County Libraries location and select a tag from the tree describing a gift to purchase. Before leaving the library, provide library staff with your contact information on the smaller portion of the tag. After you have purchased the gift, bring it to the library unwrapped and with the Giving Tree tag attached. Please bring the gift to the library before Saturday, Dec. 9.
All beneficiaries of Giving Tree gifts are Catholic Outreach clients and Mesa County residents. Gift wishes are from all ages, from newborns to seniors. Gifts are meant to be about $25 or less.
Your participation in the Giving Tree effort can help make a needy family’s holiday special this year. Please visit a participating Mesa County Libraries location and pick up a tag before Dec. 9.
