Tree of Giving Book Drive: About

2016 Tree of Giving

ABOUT THE TREE OF GIVING BOOK DRIVE

Mark O. Hatfield Library, J. W. Long Law Library, The Willamette Store, The Bistro, Sparks Athletic Center, and Pi Beta Phi combine efforts during the holiday season to sponsor an annual Tree of Giving book drive. The Tree of Giving committee chooses one or two local public schools each year to be the beneficiaries from a list of nominated schools.

We ask for involvement and support from the Willamette community in donating books for this worthwhile cause. Scarves, hats and gloves are welcome too. This support results in many donations from Willamette students, faculty, and staff, as well as community members of the Salem-Keizer area.

Every year, the Hatfield Library sets-up a tree in the library and ornaments are added to the tree for every book donated.
