The third annual Giving Tree is filled with the names of children who can really benefit from the community reaching out and making their holidays a little brighter. There are many children in the community who will not be in their own home or sleeping in their own bed this Christmas through no fault of their own.

This is why three agencies are coming together once again to help children who need the help of the community. The South Lake Tahoe branch of the El Dorado County Library is partnering with Court Appointed Special Advocates and the South Lake Tahoe Women’s Center by putting up 100 wish list ornaments on a Giving Tree at the library. Each ornament has a child’s name and a couple of wishes.

You can help by choosing an ornament, fulfilling a wish, and returning the unwrapped gifts to the library by Dec. 10. Stop by the library and make the Giving Tree part of your holiday tradition. Make you holiday a little brighter by helping a child who needs you.
