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.
