Residents of the Jefferson City area can brighten the holidays for the American Red Cross Heart of Missouri Chapter by participating in the Christmas Wish Tree.
“This is something new we are trying this year,” said Executive Director Dave Griffith. “We know people in the chapter are very generous when it comes to donating to the Red Cross and we’re hoping this is another way for individuals and businesses help us help our neighbors in need.”
Anyone interested can come to the chapter office at 431 E. McCarty St. in Jefferson City, choose an ornament off the Christmas Wish Tree and donate the item written on the ornament.
All donated items stay local.
The program continues through Dec. 28. Office hours are 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
Call 573-635-1132 or stop by the office for more information.
