Sussex Academy completes holiday Giving Tree service project
Students and staff at Sussex Academy in Georgetown recently completed their 14th Annual Giving Tree holiday service project. The Giving Tree was covered with leaves listing household items. Those who wanted to donate took leaves and purchased the items. The items were donated to adopted families in the hopes that money otherwise devoted to those needs could be used instead to provide a few wants and wishes for the holidays.
The adopted families consisted of members of the Sussex Academy family, either past or present, who were experiencing financial strain. This holiday program has brought unexpected joy for many families throughout the years.
Students display their Giving Tree leaves with donated items on shelves beside them. In back are (l-r) Max Kogler, Milton; Hailey Sidibe, Milton; and Alli Dayton, Seaford. In front are Jake Farrell, Georgetown; Kyle Berini, Lewes; and Cami Smith, Lewes.
