Giving Tree

Giving Tree

A “giving tree” will be decorated with lights and “giving cards” and placed at the Marine Corps Exchange (MCX) on 2 December. The giving tree will be relocated to the parade deck for the event. Each Command will nominate three anonymous families that may benefit from having gifts provided to their family. Community members will be able to select a giving card and purchase the items listed on the card. These purchases will be returned to building 598 at MCFTB. After the event, the tree with unselected cards returned to the (MCX), to allow more opportunities to be selected.
