Mesa County Libraries sets up giving trees

Mesa County Libraries has once again joined with Grand Valley Catholic Outreach to help families in need during the holidays.

Through Dec. 8, “giving trees” decorated with gift requests from underprivileged Mesa County residents of all ages will be set up at the central library in Grand Junction as well as branch libraries in Clifton, Fruita, Orchard Mesa and Palisade.

Participants select tags describing gifts to purchase, about $25 or less. Participants provide library staff with their contact information, purchase the gifts and bring them back to the library with the tag attached before Dec. 8.
