East High Street Elementary School supports holiday Giving Tree

December 12, 2019- ‘Tis the season of giving. East High Street Elementary School recently held its annual Giving Tree to help local families experiencing financial difficulty this holiday season purchase presents for their children. Coordinated by the school’s counseling department and PTO, the Giving Tree allowed the school’s faculty, staff, and PTO to give back to the community in which they work and/or live by purchasing gifts off a wish list supplied by the families in need of the holiday assistance.

The Giving Tree has become a much-anticipated tradition at East High Street Elementary and once again the school did not disappoint. In total, holiday cheer and joy will be brought to 136 children in our community who will receive individually wrapped gifts as a result of the program. The presents could come in any number of forms including hats, gloves, jackets, or a much-wanted toy.
