Archer’s Giving Tree

In partnership with Our Holy Redeemer Parish Outreach in Freeport, Archer Street sponsored a holiday “Giving Tree” prior to Thanksgiving.

The Archer community collected donations of canned and packaged foods, paper goods, plastic ware, and other nonperishable items that Our Holy Redeemer Parish Outreach would then provide to children and adults throughout the community. Students who brought in donations had their names written on paper leaves that were placed on the “Giving Tree” in one of the school’s hallways. The activity served as a way for Archer Street to give back to its community, and also taught students the importance of charitable endeavors during the season of giving.
