The Giving Tree

December 4, 2023–January 2, 2024

The Giving Tree is back, and we are once again partnering with BEDS Plus to collect items needed for individuals experiencing homelessness.  Over the last few years, our community has generously donated several items to this cause, including hats, handwarmers, and hundreds of dollars in low-denomination gift cards.

Items will be accepted at the Library from December 4-January 2.

Requested donations include:

  • New hats
  • Handwarmers
  • Low denomination gift cards

Hats and handwarmers can be donated in the Lobby on the Ground Floor of
the Library.  To donate gift cards, please make arrangements with Adult Services Librarian Janet Gatz at 708-598-8446 ext. 132 or

All items must be new.  We are unable to accept any used donations.
