Please take a Christmas tag or two off the Tree and a child/children’s information from the manila envelope. Please return wrapped gift with label no later than Wed., Dec. 15th.  Community Service asks you not spend more than $50.00 per child.  Do not feel bound to purchase large ticket items, all kids dream big.  However, if a child asks only for a pair of sox, please include a doll, teddy bear, a watch or a board game, to make their Christmas day special!
