Giving Tree sponsors needed

FirstLink is in need of businesses, churches, and service clubs to sponsor disadvantaged children and special-needs adults with gifts this holiday season.

There are more than 3,400 people who have registered for gifts this year. Based on current sponsorship numbers, this means that more than 1,200 sponsors still are needed to ensure everyone gets a gift.

Interested parties can help by either sponsoring a tree or, starting Nov. 27, by visiting the Giving Tree at West Acres Shopping Mall. Donations and volunteers also are needed.
