Blaine Giving Tree organizer Cheryll Wydur of the Blaine Boys & Girls Club has announced that the program has added two new locations for monetary donation dropoffs.
Monetary donations should be delivered via check payable to the Blaine Chamber of Commerce with “Giving Tree” in the subject line.
In addition to the Sterling Bank location, monetary donations may also be delivered to the Blaine Boys & Girls Club located at 635 H Street and at the Blaine Visitor and Information Center located at 728 Peace Portal Drive.
The Giving Tree began more than 20 years ago, when a member of the community noticed that there were children in Blaine and Birch Bay who would not receive gifts during the holiday season due to family financial circumstances.
Families who need help providing Christmas and holiday gifts for their children are invited to apply for this year’s program.
Applications must be submitted by Monday, November 18. Applications are available at the Blaine Boys & Girls Club, the Blaine Food Bank and the Blaine Family Service Center.
For more information about how to give or receive, call Wydur at 360/332-0069 or 360/927-9585, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
