You can help brighten a child’s holiday by participating in the annual Giving Tree program sponsored by the City of Edmonds and Volunteers of America.

Stop by Edmonds City Hall or the Frances Anderson Center to select a tag for a child. Purchase the gift, wrap it and bring it to either location by Dec. 13. Edmonds City Hall is at 121 Fifth Ave. N, and the Frances Anderson Center is at 700 Main St.

The tags are provided by Volunteers of America Western Washington, and the gifts will be donated to local children through their cooperation with Christmas House, which serves residents of Snohomish County.

The tags are for children ages 1-12 and are designated for students and families in the ECEAP (Early Childhood Education and Assistance Program) preschools and children in the Volunteers of America Short-Term Shelter.

Volunteers of America has been working to provide vital services to the most vulnerable in Western Washington since 1898.

The organization has a history of effective and compassionate assistance such as food for the hungry, shelter for the homeless, youth development for at-risk children, help for adults with disabilities and many other needs based community programs and services.
