More About the Giving Tree:

  • Requests are made for children by the United Way, Otter Tail Human Services, churches and schools.
  • Request forms are returned to the ITOW Veterans Museum at 805 West Main Street in Perham.
  • Each request is coded, keeping children’s’ and family’s names anonymous and confidential.
  • Cards are placed on the Giving Tree describing the child’s wishes for a gift.
  • You can pick a card off the tree, which is displayed at the ITOW Veterans Museum, buy the gift, wrap it and bring it back to the ITOW Veterans Museum.
  • These special gifts are anonymous, so the giver and recipient of the gift never meet.
  • In 2017, 179 children, 55 families, received Christmas gifts.
  • The Giving Tree is sponsored by the Perham Ministerial Association.
  • This community project has been chaired by Lisa and Steve Sheets for the past 24 years.
