If you are able to participate, we ask that you choose an ornament that lists a child’s needs on the back and then sign that ornament out on the sheet provided below the tree. Please keep the ornament as the tag for the gift. You may wrap the gifts if you wish or simply bring them back in bags with the tags by December 16th at the latest.
