Giving Trees returns to Highlands NC Saturday. The Bascom celebrates the holiday season its own way by focusing on non-profits in the Highlands Plateau area by offering everyone a chance to donate to the organization of his or her choice. Every non-profit that wants to participate will be displaying a tree and by each tree there will be information about the organization that decorated it as well as a box for donations.
There will also be a friendly eggnog competition. Residents of the Highlands NC area will utilize their old family recipes and toast to one another. The Bascom is a cornerstone of our community and attending the kick-off for the Giving Trees is a wonderful way to start the holiday season.
The Giving Trees display is representative of the wonderful sense of community spirit that pervades our area. The holiday season is a wonderful time for members of the Highlands community to come together and give back to organizations that help in a variety of ways. Saturday may be the kickoff, but you have until January 6, 2013 to donate.
