LA GRANDE — Cook Memorial Library invites the community to visit the Tree of Giving, which helps local families in need during the holidays. The Tree of Giving at the library is decorated with ornaments that are each labeled with the age and gender of a child along with a gift suggestion. The ornament is yours to keep. After you have purchased and wrapped the gift, write the gift identifier code on the package, return it to the library on or before Dec. 17 and help a child have a happier holiday. This year, all beneficiaries of Tree of Giving gifts are La Grande School District students. Donations of other gifts such as scarves, hats, mittens/gloves and non-perishable food items are also being collected to be distributed within the community.
