‘We Care’ Tree Still Has Open Tags
Barnes County Social Services is still looking for volunteers to fill tags on the “We Care” Christmas tree that is set up at Shopko.
Katie Pommerer, human service aide for Barnes County Social Services, told the Times-Record that the tree is an annual campaign done by Social Services during the holiday season that contains gift wish lists of needy children the community, and the community can fulfill those wish tags.”
Michelle Deitz, human service aide, said there are still plenty of open tags and distribution of gifts is next Wednesday.
Interested volunteers just have to visit Shopko and pick from the tag directory that hangs from the tree, and then fulfill the gift wish list.
The tags contain the age and gender of the child along with two under $30 gift ideas and clothing and shoe sizes.
After the gift has been purchased, Social Services asks that participants wrap the gifts and bring them back to Shopko for distribution.
