REAL Tree of Giving

Tree of Giving at Mews Community Centre with paper bulbs purchased for $3 with proceeds going to REAL program

This holiday season you can give a child the gift of play by decorating a Tree of Giving.

Trees are set up at both the H.G.R. Mews and Paul Reynolds Community Centres with paper bulbs for purchase at the front desk for $3 each or two for $5.

Proceeds from the bulbs go to the R.E.A.L. Program to provide recreation and leisure opportunities to children and youth in financial need. It matches them, up to the age of 18, with one organized recreational activity of their choice.

If you are visiting the H.G.R. Mews or Paul Reynolds Community Centres during the holidays, bring a few extra dollars to purchase a bulb. You can help children and youth in St. John’s participate in recreation and leisure activities to boost their self-esteem, promote healthy active living and support personal growth through increased knowledge and skill development.
