Giving Tree

We had a wonderful week with The Giving Tree! It was so rewarding watching the time and care each of our students, parents, faculty and staff put into picking out just the right child to sponsor. Wrapped gifts will be returned to campus any time on Monday, Dec. 8th. If anyone missed the opportunity, there are still a few last wishes left in the Community Service office. Simply email snordenger@ljcds.org if interested.
