Giving Tree engages the community to give back

The Giving Tree is an annual event, coordinated by the Alumni Association, to help stock the pantry shelves of the Douglas-Elbert Task Force.  It’s only a few hours, once a year, but the impact on volunteers and families touched, is extraordinary.

High school students also helped, with smiling faces, and even got credit for community service hours from their schools!
