YMCA Project Giving Tree up in Mt Laurel

The YMCA of Burlington and Camden counties is asking for the community’s help through its annual Project Giving Tree program to benefit local children with financial need.

The Y’s goal of Project Giving Tree is to build hope and wonder for children by providing gifts to deserving children in Burlington County who might otherwise have to do without. Children whose families face challenges this holiday season are identified by their schools. The Giving Trees are decorated with tags identifying a child’s name, age, clothing size and what they would like from Santa. Anyone from the community may come in to the YMCA, select one or more tags from the Tree before December 11 and answer a child’s dream. Gifts will be collected until December 12.

The Giving Trees are displayed in the Welcome Centers at both Y locations: 59 Centerton Road, Mt. Laurel and along the Riverfront at 302 Commerce Sq. Blvd., Burlington.
