The “Tree of Giving” is an opportunity for the community to assist families in need of some cheer this holiday season. To register to receive a gift there is a simple request form listed below that can be filled out and returned to the YMCA front desk. The deadline for returning applications is Monday, November 8th. Due to tight time constraints, applications received after this deadline are unable to be accepted and processed.
