WHEN:           November 16 through December 21, 2018

WHERE:        Pony Village Mall, 1611 Virginia Ave., North Bend, OR 97459

  2. Purchase the gift requested on the ornament
  3. Return wrapped gifts with the original ornament by December 20 

All names have been changed to protect their identities and situations. All of the needs of the recipients on the tree come from local agencies, not individuals or families.
