The GMA Giving Tree


Charlotte Ormond

Gwynedd held their annual Giving Tree again this Christmas. The Giving Tree is led by Mr. Fromhold and it is a great opportunity for the girls to demonstrate the Mercy values and help make someone’s Christmas a little more special. Students can sign up for a gift to bring in for different ages of children and women who are in need. Mr. Fromhold mentioned that this year, within 3 days of him sending the email out, all the slots were taken and he “continues to be impressed by the generosity of our community. All the gifts this year will be going to Mercy Neighborhood Ministries, a group that works to help those suffering in poverty and other economic challenges, and Women of Hope, an organization that responds to the growing issue of homeless women. It is predicted that this year Gwynedd will be spreading joy to 120 people in needThrough the Giving Tree, our community can work together to make a difference this Christmas. Mr. Fromhold reminds us that, “It is our duty no matter who we are to help those out that are less fortunate.”
