Gift of Love success

By  | 

SCOTTSBLUFF, Neb. (KNEP) The Gift of Love has been an amazing success so far. There is one more event this weekend that folks can contribute to.

The tree of love program is set to deliver 349 gifts into the hands of deserving children this year. The tree held the names of children, and their wishes. Every tag was taken from the tree.

Students from 7 schools in Scottsbluff collected 9,840 lbs of food. Lincoln Heights came in first place for collecting over 3,000. The food from this collection was weighed, and then donated to Valley Christian Neighbors in Need, CAPWN, and our Lady of Guadalupe food pantry.

This Saturday, from 9am to 2pm, they are holding their final event at 1st Bank on Broadway Ave. You can bring new and gently used toys for newborns to late teens. Also, they will fill a whole van with new and like new jackets for all ages and sizes. Also, they will continue to collect cans and non-perishable food items.
