Bear Creek School Giving Tree benefits students from the Greater-Elizabethtown community

December 16, 2019- Forty-six families from the greater-Elizabethtown community will receive presents for their children as part of the Bear Creek School’s annual Giving Tree initiative. Through the generosity of the school’s faculty and staff, the Department of Corrections, and the PTO, age- and gender-appropriate gifts have been purchased for the children whose families are experiencing financial difficulty during this holiday season.

Coordinated by the school’s counseling department, the Giving Tree provided the school and its community partners with a way to bring holiday joy to local families in need. The individually wrapped gifts will be given out before the holiday break. The Bear Creek School Giving Tree has become an annual tradition and just one of many ways in which the school gives back to the community it serves.
