Mesa County Libraries to set up “giving trees” for the holidays

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

Through Dec. 7, “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, most valued at about $25 or less. Participants provide library staff with their contact information, purchase the gifts and bring them back, unwrapped, to the library with the tag attached before Dec. 7.

All beneficiaries of giving tree gifts are Catholic Outreach clients and Mesa County residents.
