The families purchased gifts that were on the tags and brought them to the library for a wrapping party. The Giving Tree has gift tags provided by Cape Henlopen School District’s Visiting Teacher and Homeless Liaisons as well as West Rehoboth Youth Program and Delaware Guidance.  These wishes appear as gift tags on the Giving Tree for adoption by the congregation and community. In early December, the tags re- maining on the Giving Tree are turned over to the “shopping elves” to finish purchasing the gifts as well as the grocery items and food gift cards for the family’s Christmas food basket.  Working together on the wrapping are Erin, left, and Drake Most. Lauren Wisely, left, gets some wrapping help from Sarah Wiggin. Friends Harper Sermen, left, and Zoe Ryan, center, are eager to help Rebecca Sermen wrap a gift. All of the family pitches in to wrap presents. Shown working well together are (l-r) Ollie, Jen, Fos- ter and Mason Shade. Child’s Play graduate Brandon Wilkinson happily wraps a gift. Wilkinson had so much fun last year he returned to help with the project.
