Saint Mary's University Gifts for Winona giving trees will be going up before Thanksgiving.
This communitywide program is in its 12th year and is providing gifts to area children and seniors in need this holiday season.
Tags, each labeled with a different personal holiday gift wishes, will be placed on area giving trees next week. Gifts for Winona's main priority is to provide gifts to children 18 years of age and younger and individuals 60 years of age and older.
Trees will be located at: the three Severson-Sinclair locations, Walmart, the Winona Public Library, the Winona Post, as well as Security State Bank of Lewiston. Additionally, grocery cards can be purchased for families at both HyVee and Midtown Foods.
Individuals who want to help make someone's season a little merrier should visit one of these locations, take as many tags off the trees as they wish, and return the gifts by December 12th to the tree where they obtained the tags.
The recommended amount for holiday gifts is approximately $35 per person. Tags should be securely taped to the outside of the presents or the bag of presents.
