A Christmas Giving Tree, set up in the lobby of the Mountlake Terrace Recreation Pavilion, provides an opportunity for local residents to help bring a little holiday joy to several families in need.
Tags with gift ideas for various family members hang on the tree, waiting for individuals to claim. To participate, take a tag, buy the gift, then return the gift unwrapped with a box and wrapping paper to the Recreation Pavilion by Dec. 6.
The Giving Tree has become an annual program and is sponsored by the City of Mountlake Terrace and Pioneer Counseling Services. The Recreation Pavilion is located at 5303-228th St. S.W. in Mountlake Terrace.
