An Undecorated Tree? At This Time of Year?

Holiday Tree Decorated with Donation EnvelopesOur faithful Friends are at it again. They’ve put up a tree to be undecorated. You're probably wondering what that means.

In our lobby you will find a tree covered with envelopes. When the giving mood strikes all you have to do is remove one of those envelopes, insert a donation, and put it in the gift box located at the customer service desk. All money received will be put towards developing the adult, children’s and teen collections.
