In this season of giving The Sharing Tree continues to be a beacon of light for many Mt. Healthy families. This year has made it difficult to accept gifts for families yet, Mt. Healthy City School District and The City of Mt. Healthy are still providing assistance through The Sharing Tree. Some of our families have lost an income or job, a place to live, or the ability to buy presents. For this reason, the City of Mt. Healthy and Mt. Healthy City School joined forces for the 29th year to help those in the community that need an extra hand. The Sharing Tree organization helped 84 families this year including 253 children, most of whom are part of the Mt. Healthy City School District. Volunteers provided funds that were used to purchase $29,440 in gift cards to Meijer, Kroger, Walmart, and Target for families to use for Christmas gifts.
The Sharing Tree is a non-profit organization run solely by volunteers and has helped families in need for over 29 years in the Mt. Healthy City School District and community. In past years, these organizations provide food, clothing, toys, books, and toiletries to families with children each year. Items are donated from many organizations including Kroger and Meijer. This year the needs of our community will be met with the distribution of gift cards.
