Palisades Giving Tree Sprouts Again

November 30, 2012

For nearly two decades, Palisades plant employees have supported a significant community project that focuses on the area’s senior citizens. The “Giving Tree” helps provide a Christmas gift wish come true for residents of South Haven area nursing homes who may not otherwise receive one during the holidays.

The concept is simple: a decorated Christmas tree is set up in the plant’s main lobby, covered with numbered construction paper ornaments. Each ornament has a Christmas wish gift for the designated resident. Employees wishing to participate take the ornament, purchase and wrap the gift and return it to the tree. On Saturday, Dec. 15, “Santa” (a Palisades employee) and his elves will deliver the gifts to the nursing home residents during their holiday party.

Helping improve the lives of those in our community – a commitment Palisades keeps every day.
