Give What You Want; Take What You Need
The “Giving Tree” has returned to downtown Saguache for the 5th consecutive year. Back in 2012, the founders of Saguache Works were inspired by a long-time “giving tradition” in the town of Carbondale, which was inspired, in turn, by a very special random act of kindness. Residents in this other small Colorado town were invited to hang small gifts on an outdoor tree – toys, coats, hats, mittens, decorative items or even dollar bills – and make them available for anyone to take.
During the past four holiday seasons, public response to the Saguache Giving Tree has been overwhelming. New gifts appear on a daily basis, including small gifts such as clothing, toys, books and small household items. Needless to say, every gift found a good home.
Saguache Works staff and volunteers want to perpetuate the diea of kindness and caring for one another. Thanks for your generousity!
