Swanton Lions Club Kicks Off Annual Giving Tree Program
The Swanton Lions Club is beginning its annual Giving Tree Program this weekend to help financially struggling families with young children enjoy the Christmas holidays. The focus will be on students enrolled in Swanton Elementary School and all of their siblings from infants to eighth grade.
The Lions will be hanging “Stockings” at various locations in the Village of Swanton including the American Legion Post 479, Benefield’s Wines, CK Sweets, Club Salon, First Federal Delta and You-nique Bou-tique.
To help these families, stop in at any of these locations and pull out a list of items from a stocking that identifies what one of the children needs or has asked for. Items may include everything from clothes and footwear to books and toys. Some or all of the items may be purchased and returned to the same location no later than December 8, 2021.
In lieu of shopping for a gift, checks or cash donations will be accepted. After all gifts and donations have been collected, Lions Club members will shop for whatever items are still needed, place them together by family and distribute them soon after.
The Swanton Lions Club thanks you in advance for your generosity.
