Ribbon Cutting Ceremony Announced!

Who:  Community Giving Tree, one of the North Shore’s most successful grassroots charitable organizations assisting lower income families in Essex County with essentials such as baby equipment, children’s clothing, winter coats, toiletries and back-to-school supplies.

What: Ribbon Cutting Ceremony to celebrate the opening of its recently completed 2,400-foot donation and distribution facility.

Where: Community Giving Tree – On the grounds of the 2nd Congregational Church, West Boxford – 570 Main St., West Boxfood, MA 01921

When: Saturday, June 12, 2010; 10 a.m. – 1 p.m.; General Public Invited to Attend

  • 10-10:15 am – opening ceremony color guard; Boy scout troop #51
  • 10:15- Building Dedication
  • 10:20-10:30 – Remarks by Community Giving Tree Executive Director Leslie Levenson
  • 10:45-11 – remarks by public officials
  • 11 – ribbon cutting
  • 11-1:30 – reception and tours of the facility.
Why: Community Giving Tree’s original space in a small garage behind the 2nd Congregational Church, West Boxford, became inadequate. Volunteers worked in cold, cramped conditions while as many as 40 social workers collecting items for their clients were forced to wait outside the garage to receive their goods. At times, donations had to be turned away for the lack of space.
