 Not able to make it to one of the three Safeway locations
in Douglas County on March 12th to make a food or cash donation
to the Douglas/Elbert Task Force (DETF) on behalf of Giving Tree? 
We have another option.  Giving Tree has provided an online tool to donate
fresh food options that will be delivered to the DETF.  It is simple, quick, and
takes your donation to the next level so please consider those in need
throughout Douglas and Elbert County.  The online link is below.

 Giving Tree drive

 The Giving Tree is an annual project of Leadership Douglas County Alumni devoted to continuing the tradition of giving back to the Douglas County community.  What started as a small group of alumni in one Douglas County community has now expanded county-wide and become the signature project of the LDC Alumni Association.  The group’s philosophy is, “Citizens of Douglas County coming together to give back to those in need in Douglas County.”

The activities organized by The Giving Tree provide one of the LDCA’s major objectives to serve as a repository for social service and non-profit needs that have a direct impact on the Douglas County community.

The Giving Tree conducts an annual food drive in March/April, partnering with local Safeway Stores with the support of American Furniture Warehouse.  Donations go to the Douglas Elbert Task Force food bank, the recipient of over 100, 000 pounds of food in the drive’s first six years. The Giving Tree has a second annual project, which is a school supply drive in conjunction with the Douglas County Education Foundation to make sure all students return to school ready to learn.

The Douglas County community generously supported the drive with over a 1000 pounds of food and dry goods.
