Tim's Community Sharing Tree is back again in the lower level of the Lake Forest Park Town Center, intersection of Bothell and Ballinger Way.
From now until December 22 shoppers can pick up information (gender and age) about a child in our area who could use a lift at Christmas.
You buy a gift, drop it off unwrapped at the tree, and we get it delivered, through the Shoreline School District, Hopelink and the North Helpline.
Last year the Sharing Tree provided holiday gifts to over 500 children.
The Sharing Tree has been a service project of the LFP Rotary Club for the past 22 years, and has become a holiday tradition for many local residents.
This year the Tree is being managed by a Boy Scout from Troop 309, Matt, who is doing this service as his Eagle Scout project requirement. The name of the project honors Tim Davis, a former LFP Rotarian who started it.
Rotary Club members will staff the Tree everyday between 11:00am and 8:00pm, through December 22, to help you pick a child to shop for and to provide gift ideas.
