Staff members from the Dale Association recently created a "giving tree" out of items needed by Lockport CARES Inc. The Lockport homeless shelter publishes a wish list on its website, www.lockportcares.org. Staff members used that list to guide their purchases for the shelter. Word spread to friends of The Dale, and donations of cold weather clothing came, in as well.

The giving tree was the department's entry in an agency-wide tree-decorating contest.

The Dale Association giving tree is shown below.
