Here is a note from Marilyn Kosiorek, Community Services Committee

“The Giving Tree is a huge undertaking that begins in early November with requesting and receiving the names of needy children from North Port Social Services.  This year we provided Christmas for 72 children from 29 families in North Port. 
Ornaments are taken from the tree and presents are generously donated.  These are collected each day and families grouped together.  

This year we did the wrapping a bit different due to Covid. Twenty-two  volunteers came by my house on December 7th with their trunks opened. We gave them garbage bags filled with presents for individual families and wrapping paper. They took them home, wrapped them all and dropped them back off. Later we loaded them in 7 cars to be taken the next morning to be dropped off at North Port Social Services.  We also had 2  "trucks" deliver 13 bikes that same morning. 

It will certainly be a Merry Christmas thanks to all the generous people of Heron Creek! “
