The Giving Tree open until December 17

St. John’s Congregation Child Care Center and Congregation are teaming up this Advent season for the second annual Giving Tree for Justice Page Middle School families who have been identified by school social workers as “highly mobile/at risk.” Our goal is to provide each family with a backpack bursting with food, one Target gift card and one Cub Foods gift card.
