Letter: Thanks to all who helped families through City’s Giving Tree project


On behalf of the City of Edmonds, we would like to thank everyone who participated in the 2011
Giving Tree project. Between the trees located at the Frances Anderson Center and at City Hall,
there were approximately 150 tags. These tags were provided by Volunteers of America and
were for local children and adults who needed help to make the season brighter for them. Even
in this challenging economy, almost every tag was taken by generous citizens and employees,
and brightly wrapped packages were distributed to the grateful recipients.

Volunteers of America told us that they helped 1,115 families this holiday season, and we are
very proud to be a part of that effort.  Again, thank you for your spirit of giving and we wish you
the best in 2012!
