Second Annual “Giving Tree Project” at Greece Town Hall 

The Second Annual Giving Tree Project in the Town of Greece is currently underway. This project provides an opportunity for community members to help families in need during the holidays. 

The “Giving Tree” will be located at Greece Town Hall in the atrium from Wednesday, November 21st thru Monday, December 17th. Ornament tags will be placed on the tree indicating the specific item or items needed. Most needed items this year include new scarfs, hats, gloves/mittens, and sweaters. New/gently used coats are also needed. Community members are invited to take a tag off the tree, purchase the item, and return the unwrapped item to the boxes located by the tree. 

Residents may pick up ornaments from the tree in the atrium during Greece Town Hall regular business hours from 9AM to 5PM, excluding holidays. Please be informed that after 5:00PM on Weekdays and Saturday mornings, ornaments must be picked up at the Greece Community and Senior Center at 3 Vince Tofany Boulevard. 

At the conclusion of the project, the donated items will be given to Mission Share Outreach Center of Greece, NY. Mission Share Outreach is a collaborative effort of 13 churches in the Town of Greece to serve those in need year round.

“I am thrilled to be launching the “Giving Tree Project” again this holiday season. I would like to thank Mission Share Outreach for partnering with the Town of Greece as we bring the spirit of Christmas to those in need this holiday season. Time and again, I have witnessed residents in the Town of Greece stepping up and coming forward to help their neighbors in need. This is truly a caring community and I am so blessed to live in this Town,” Greece Town Supervisor Bill Reilich said.
