Giving Trees back at Mesa County Libraries

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO/KJCT)-- When you’re next checking out a book from the library, make sure to check out the Giving Christmas Trees.

It's now the 10th year of the Mesa County Libraries and Grand Valley Catholic Outreach partnership.

It’s a way to help support local families in need during the holidays.

Trees can be found at five Mesa County Library locations. The Central Library in Grand Junction and branches in Clifton, Fruita, Orchard Mesa, and Palisade.

It’s easy, all the trees have a tag explaining what gift a person wants for Christmas. You take that tag, buy the gift and then drop it back off at the library.

“You know this is our tenth year doing this and it's a wonderful thing for our patrons to be able to help needy families in the community. It's a great thing for the library to be involved in because we just love helping our community in any way we can,” said Bob Kretschman, Communication Manager for Mesa County Libraries.

All the gifts go right back into the community for all ages. The deadline is December 8.

For more info call them at (970) 243-4442 or visit the Central Library at 443 N 6th Street in Grand Junction.
