THE GIVING TREE- written to Chris Coleman who is hosting our party and asked that we in turn, support The Giving Tree
The Giving Tree Administrators thank you and the Kona Coffee Farmers for your interest in helping our Big Island Giving Tree project this year.
We are focusing on our kupuna (senior citizens) this season and will try to reach as many as we can. In years past we provided bags filled with food, basic necessities and a blanket to kupuna in Waimea, Kohala, Honokaa and some Kona. This year we want to cover more in Kona as well.
Donations Specifically Requested for The Giving Tree: Checks made out to Big Island Giving Tree, gift cards from Costco,Target, Walmart, Longs, Gas cards-in any amount-, or blankets being lap blanket or twin size. (a $10 gift card or check would be welcome)
FROM The Giving Tree administrators: We really have found over the years that donations of things were more trouble than they were worth, so this year we really prefer cash donations so that we can purchase exactly what we need, plus it saves us the time needed to move “things” around. This way we can be more efficient and help more!
You may also know about our Christmas morning meal. We will reach more seniors this year with that treat as well.
