It's giving time

 

Seward Community Library Museum

The Wish Tree is up at the library.

Generosity never goes out of style, and during the holidays opportunities to give are everywhere.

Angel Tree

For over 30 years the Angel Tree program has made sure all Seward and Moose Pass families have gifts for Christmas.

Nomination for the program are due tomorrow. Anyone can nominate a family.

The gifts are gathered by donation. People can pick out a paper angel at the locations below. Each angel lists the age and gender of a child. Then the giver purchases gifts for the child and drops it off at Seward Fire Department by end of business on Dec. 11. Suggested gifts include toys, diapers, warm clothing and household item.

On Dec. 12 the public is invited to the gift wrapping party at the Seward Firehall from noon to 2 p.m. Refreshments of cookies and cocoa are provided.

The gifts will be distributed Dec. 16 and 17 by Seward and Moose Pass volunteer firemen.

Nomination forms are at Alaska SeaLife Center, Bear Creek Volunteer Fire Department, City of Seward Utility Counter, SeaView Community Services, Seward Community Health Center, Seward Community Library and Seward Volunteer Fire Department.

Angels are at Alaska SeaLife Center, Alaska Shop, Brown & Hawkins/Mountain View Sports, City of Seward Utility Counter, First National Bank Anchorage, Safeway, Seward Volunteer Fire Department, True Value/The Fish House and Wells Fargo.

For information, contact Jonathan Gage at 491-0089 or Jilian Chapman at 422-2911.

Santa Parade

Right before the Angel Tree gift wrapping party there is a party with Santa for families at the American Legion with rides on fire trucks for the children. The party starts at 11 a.m.

Pantry Fundraiser

Again this year Essential One is donating 5 cents for each gallon of gasoline purchased before Dec. 20 to the He Will Provide Food Pantry.

Holiday Wish Tree

The annual Holiday Wish Tree is up at Seward Community Library Museum. Each ornament on the tree displays a children's, junior or young adult book that the Friends of the Library has selected. Anyone can sponsor a book and their name, or the name of someone they designate, will be placed on a bookplate. It costs $20 to sponsor a book. The Wish Tree will be up into January.
