How the Giving Tree works:

1. Select a tag or tags from the tree (the tag will be attached to the gift you purchase)

2. Purchase the item or items listed on the tag.

3. Wrap the items individually in a box or gift bag and secure tag to the  package.

4. Return the wrapped gift to Church or Battle Lake School no later than Wednesday December  11th.

This months project for First Lutheran is "Health Kits" containing personal hygiene items such as bath towel, wash cloth, soaps, tooth brushes, etc. Please consider helping us reach our goal of 25 health kits. We have a fall tree decorated with turkeys, leaves and acorns with an item named on each.

 We need your assistance to complete this project by November 30th.

You can pick up one of these tags, purchase the item and place item in the tote box  marked
