The Spring Hill Police Department is once again sponsoring the Giving Tree in partnership with Spring Hill Fresh.
SHPD has sponsored a gift-giving event every year to help ensure Christmas gifts for hundreds of local, needy, elementary school children who might, otherwise, not have anything under the tree.
This year, the focus of the ‘Giving Tree‘ will expand to also help local Veterans and elderly who have been identified as needing some help this Christmas!
Each year they have served approximately 100 children with the help of our community, local businesses and civic organizations donating gifts and money.
You and/or your business can sponsor a child, military veteran, or senior by signing up for a gift on the online Giving Tree sign-up sheet found here. We will continue to add to this list up until our cut-off date. Giving Tree Sign-up Link
