All Month Long – The Giving Tree
In the spirit of giving to our community, the Sausalito Woman’s Club will be providing a special holiday gift for each of the teachers at Bayside/MLK and Willow Creek Academy. By buying an ornament for The Giving Tree, members of the SWC will provide an Amazon Gift Card for each teacher to help support classroom projects. Ornaments can be purchased for $20. The goal is to fill The Giving Tree with ornaments so each classroom benefits! If you’d like to purchase an ornament, please contact Laurie Tandy – email@example.com or Susan D. Frank – firstname.lastname@example.org
