A Servant's Heart Sponsors "Teen Tree"
A Servant’s Heart ministry has erected a Christmas tree at the Blue Beaker located at 721 LaSalle St., Ottawa, Illinois and designated it the “Teen Tree” which will be used to gather Christmas gifts for teens who may otherwise go without during this Christmas season.
A Servant’s Heart is receiving names of teenagers ages 13-18 who are in need and gathering information on them such as age, sex, clothing sizes, shoe sizes and any of their interests. The youth are then each assigned a number for anonymity and their information recorded on an index card and hung on the tree (without their name). People are then asked to come into Blue Beaker and choose a card and purchase that teenager a Christmas gift(s). The unwrapped gift or gifts along with the card can then be dropped off at A Servant’s Heart offices at 610 W. Jefferson St., Ottawa, IL or the Blue Beaker at 721 LaSalle St., Ottawa, IL. A Servant’s Heart will then match the card with the name of the teenager and present the gift(s) to that teenager.
If you wish to add a teenager to the list or if you have questions regarding the “Teen Tree”, you may contact A Servant’s Heart at 815.434.3470. The deadline for adding a teenager to the list is Monday, December 10, 2012.
A Servant’s Heart is open Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Wednesday 9 a.m. to 12 N. The ministry is located at 610 W. Jefferson St., Ottawa, Illinois.
