The “trees” of tags you see at Christmas, Easter and during the summer months are the work of the Holiday Sharing volunteers. The purpose of this program is to provide holiday gifts and school supplies for local needy families. Hundreds of individuals and families are assisted each year from local organizations such as Catholic Charities, Little City, PADS (Journeys | The Road Home homeless clients), St. Joseph’s Home for the Elderly, St. Mary’s Services, The Peace Corner Youth Center, WINGS, and St. Vincent dePaul Society clients in Chicago. Tags are prepared and posted six weeks prior to each holiday. Donations are requested to be returned approximately two weeks before the actual holiday.
