Tags still available on giving trees for Saint Mary’s University Gifts for Winona

Saint Mary’s University Gifts for Winona giving trees are still full of tags. This communitywide program is providing gifts to area children and seniors in need this holiday season.

Each tag is labeled with a different person’s holiday gift wishes. In addition to a tree in Saint Mary’s Hall, trees are located at the three Severson-Sinclair locations, Walmart, and Security State Bank of Lewiston. Additionally, grocery cards can be purchased for families at both HyVee and Midtown Foods.

The Saint Mary’s community is invited to take a tag from the Saint Mary’s tree, shop for items on the gift list, and return gifts by Dec. 10 to the Business Office. The recommended amount for holiday gifts is approximately $35 per person. Tags should be securely taped to the outside of the gift/gifts. They do not need to be wrapped.

As the gift distribution is early this year—mid-December—the community is asked to begin their season of giving early as well. The success of this program depends on the generosity of the Winona-area community.
