Wish Tree 2013 kicks off this week

December 4, 2013

Eastern Sierra residents have an opportunity to make local children’s Christmas wishes come true this year through the Inyo-Mono Advocates for Community Action Wish Tree program.
The Wish Tree program pairs a local resident with a child from a low-income household to ensure that youth in every community from Benton to Olancha don’t have to go without this Christmas.
By picking a bulb off one of the local Wish Trees found in community businesses, residents will find out what a local child wants to see under the Christmas tree on Dec. 25. The bulbs also include the child’s clothing sizes, so his or her sponsor can purchase warm winter clothes for their Wish Tree recipient.
