Give a Gift to a Child in Need: The Giving Tree @ the Library

The Center for Community Arts Partnerships (CCAP), and the Library have partnered to bring you an opportunity to give a gift to child in need. The Giving Tree will allow students, faculty, and staff from Columbia College Chicago to purchase a gift for an elementary student at Herzl Elementary School who has lost their home in the last year. 

Beginning Friday, December 1 through Wednesday, December 14, the Giving Tree will be located in the Library, across from the Circulation Desk, First Floor.  The Tree will contain names of children in need and the gift that they would like for the holiday season.  For more information, stop by the Library or contact Kim Hale at 312.369.7431 or Roland Hansen at 312.369.7431.

If you prefer to donate cash in lieu of a purchased gift, or have other questions about the Giving Tree, contact the project coordinator at:
Please note: No monetary donations will be accepted by the Library.

By choosing to buy a scarf, doll, coat, or race car for a Herzl student this holiday season, you will make their holiday season a bit brighter.
