|EAST LONGMEADOW Children in area foster homes will have gifts again this year, thanks in part to the Giving Tree now "planted" at Meadows Insurance Agency on North Main Street. |
"It's a fun way for us to give back to the community," noted Jay Norma Tryon, Manager. "Plus, it helps kids in need find enjoyment in the holidays."
The Giving Tree fund-raiser will run until Dec. 18 and donations can be made at Meadows Insurance Agency, located at 200 North Main Street in East Longmeadow or by calling 525-1721.
Tryon explained that the Agency's Giving Tree is decorated with thirty paper ornaments and each ornament contains the name, age, and gift requested by a specific child. Anyone can make a donation for a particular gift. aWhen donations are made, the paper ornament is replaced by one made of glass.
