The 4 th Annual Holiday Giving Tree at the Lohse Family YMCA is a program focused on giving back to those in our community. Community members will find the Holiday Giving Tree to be a warm experience during the holiday season that helps spread holiday cheer to those in need. Since 2012, this program has served over 95 families, 350 individuals. Beginning in November members of the community can visit the Lohse Family YMCA lobby to pick an ornament tag. These tags have a family member listed who is in need and their requested items. Once selected, community members shop for the family and bring back their donated items. The Lohse Family YMCA’s Christmas Elves will work around the clock to ensure all our families in need receive their gifts.
