Swanton Lions Club Passes Out Giving Tree Gifts
Last night, at the banquet hall of the Swanton Sports Center, members of the Swanton Lions Club handed out Christmas gifts, gathered and purchased from their annual Giving Tree program, to families that needed some help for their children this holiday season.
This year, the program staged Christmas stockings which contained a list of clothing needs of a child along with some of their toy and game likes, at several Swanton business locations including the American Legion, Benfield Wines, CK Sweets, Club Salon, First Federal Savings & Loan and Younique Boutique. Many generous individuals took those lists and either shopped for the items or donated money to the cause and allowed Lions Club members to shop for the rest.
The Swanton Sports Center donated the space to store, sort, package and distribute all the gifts while Club members contacted all the families with pick up information. Like every year, and not at all surprising, the generosity and support of people in the Swanton community was overwhelming.
