This festive season, The Pickle Lodge is delighted to launch The Giving Tree, a heartwarming initiative in collaboration with Reach Out Lakota. Our goal is to light up the holidays for children in need from West Chester and Liberty Township, ensuring they experience the joy and wonder of Christmas.
A new Tradition of Giving
For many families serviced by Reach Out Lakota, the holiday season can be a period of stress and uncertainty. The Giving Tree offers a way for us to share the holiday spirit with those who need it most because the spirit of giving is deeply embedded in the ethos of The Pickle Lodge. The Giving Tree is more than just a tree; it’s a beacon of hope, a symbol of community kindness, and a direct way to make a positive impact in a child’s life.
How The Giving Tree Works
Nestled in the cozy corner of The Lodge, you’ll find a beautifully adorned tree. But this is no ordinary Christmas tree. Each ornament hanging from its branches carries a special significance – the Christmas wish of a local child in need.
- Step 1: Choose an Ornament. Visit The Pickle Lodge and select an ornament from The Giving Tree. Each one has the details of a gift requested by a child from our community. These aren’t extravagant wishes, but simple tokens of joy that can make a world of difference to a child.
- Step 2: Purchase the Gift. Once you have chosen an ornament, your task is to go out and purchase that gift. It’s an opportunity to walk in the shoes of a child, imagining their delight as they open it on Christmas morning.
- Step 3: Return the Gift Unwrapped. After purchasing the gift, bring it back to The Lodge unwrapped. It will be given to
A Community Effort
This initiative is more than just about gifts; it’s about community, compassion, and coming together for a greater cause. Our tree is packed with requests from children in West Chester and Liberty Township, reflecting the real needs within our very own neighborhood.
Why It Matters
In the hustle and bustle of holiday preparations, it’s easy to forget that for some, this season can be challenging. The Giving Tree is a reminder of the true essence of Christmas – sharing, caring, and bringing smiles to those who might otherwise go without.
Join Us in Spreading Joy
We invite you to stop by The Pickle Lodge and help us make a difference with Reach Out Lakota. Your small act of kindness can make a huge difference in a child’s Christmas. Let’s come together to ensure every child in our community feels the warmth and joy of the season.
Remember, every ornament picked is a life touched, a spirit lifted, and a holiday made brighter. Help us change their Christmas – one gift, one child, one ornament at a time.
