Approximately 30 ornaments remain on the 23rd annual Giving Tree, displayed in the Mirror-Reporter office. The remaining ornaments contain the needs of local children whose parents are asking for some help to make the Christmas season a little brighter for their families.
All food ornaments on the tree have been checked out from the Reporter office.
This year the Giving Tree contains just over 215 ornaments.
