Teen Giving Tree

The Teen Giving Tree has appeared in our foyer. The tree is decorated with tags containing a gift suggestion for a teenage boy or girl whose family is assisted by the Parke County Community Food Pantry. Select a tag, purchase the gift item ($10.00 price range) and return, unwrapped, to one of the totes at the foot of the tree. The Food Pantry also accepts gently used or “like new” toys, books and gift items for this purpose.
