Owens Community College's Office of Student Activities is providing opportunities for area residents to make a difference in their surrounding Northwest Ohio communities by announcing the second annual "Giving Tree" community outreach program.
Individuals will have the chance to give back to others through acts of kindness as determined by messages on designated leaves of the "Giving Tree."
Beginning Nov. 1, participants will have the first opportunity to choose a leaf for their community outreach assignment. Trees will be located in Founders Hall and the College Hall Atrium on the campus in Perrysburg Township.
"Owens Community College's Office of Student Activities wanted to once again provide an outlet that connects the community to volunteer opportunities and the 'Giving Tree' outreach program accomplishes that goal," said Nicole Buccalo, Owens student activities assistant.
"Participants will be able to go up to the tree and choose from one of three colored leaves. Red leaves will be the highest level of giving, orange leaves will be the second highest and yellow leaves will be the lowest level, which will primarily have no cost. Each leaf will have a volunteer task, which ranges from opening the door for someone to donating a toy item for Toys for Tots."
All community outreach tasks are asked to be dropped off in boxes adjacent to the Giving Tree locations. At that time, all completed projects will be delivered to their respective community organizations.
Among the organizations participating in community outreach program are the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Northwest Ohio, Toys for Tots, Cherry Street Mission Ministries, the Cocoon Shelter, Missions International of America, the United States military, Owens Harvest Food Pantry and the Wood County Humane Society.
