Tree of Giving Book Drive: About

2015 Tree of Giving

ABOUT THE TREE OF GIVING BOOK DRIVE

Mark O. Hatfield Library, The Willamette Store, and the Willamette Bistro 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, scarves, hats and gloves. This support results in many donations from Willamette students, faculty, and staff, as well as 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.
