Franklin County Visitors Bureau is joining forces with Homeless Matters and Grocery Outlet to bring another community connection to Festival of Trees by adding a 12-days of Christmas event called Sharing the Heart of the Holiday. Sharing the Heart of the Holiday is a giving and receiving event that features a collection of twelve items to support Franklin County residents that need a little help this holiday season.
Each of the twelve days has a featured item to correspond with each day of Festival of Trees. Franklin County Visitors Bureau, Homeless Matters, and Grocery Outlet hope to make this an annual part of Festival of Trees. The twelve days and the highlighted collection for each day are:
November 19 - Coats for Kids
More donation locations include: Franklin County Visitors Bureau, Greater Waynesboro Chamber of Commerce, Greencastle Chamber of Commerce, Shippensburg Chamber of Commerce, Franklin County Area Development, Waynesboro YMCA, Chambersburg YMCA, Coyle Free Library, Grove Family Library, Elks Lodge of Chambersburg, Penn National Golf Course Community, Sweet Dandelion and One North Main & Bakery Shop in Mercersburg and Cornerstone Financial.
