The Florence Civic Club is organizing for a busy Christmas season with their 16th annual Share Tree and Toys for Tots & Teens projects.
There are seven share trees in Florence, each decorated with tags requesting specific items of clothing for local children and teens in need. Donors can find a tag to fulfill on any of the trees, and return their gift to the Farmer’s State Bank for safekeeping. New toys can be left in one of the 11 Toys 4 Tots & Teens boxes in Florence.
Because of our generous anonymous donors, all of the Florence children and teens represented on the trees will be gifted with a new pair of shoes, new pants, a warm shirt, hat and gloves and a new toy. Some tags also request cash cards for IGA, socks, and wrapping paper. Monetary donations to the projects are always needed and welcomed - Florence Civic Club, PO Box 544, Florence, MT 59833.
