Plea to dig deep for Christ­mas

The Tribune (NZ) - - NEWS -

For years, the Palmer­ston North Kmart Wish­ing Tree has been the top per­form­ing ‘tan­nen­baum’ in the coun­try.

Last Christ­mas, gen­er­ous Palmy-nauts do­nated an im­pres­sive 5951 gifts to the Kmart Wish­ing Tree ap­peal, and also con­trib­uted ad­di­tional funds on­line (­ingtree) or through the Kmart reg­is­ters.

The na­tional ap­peal has been run­ning for 21 years, with the do­nated gifts dis­trib­uted through­out the re­gion to dis­ad­van­taged fam­i­lies by the Sal­va­tion Army.

The Wish­ing Tree is re­ceiv­ing gifts up un­til Christ­mas Eve.

‘‘We hope that peo­ple . . . give gen­er­ously.’’
