Give to the Madonna House, take from the Tree of Giving

      As you begin placing gifts under your Christmas tree, staff at the Madonna House in Quincy ask that you take a moment to think about less fortunate families.

      Help a struggling family by participating in the Tree of Giving. When you give a donation this Christmas, you'll help the Madonna House feed, shelter and protect young mothers and their children.

      Items needed at the Madonna House are listed on the ornament. Items include diapers, clothing, toys, toiletries and other necessities. All you have to do is take an ornament, purchase the items on it and bring the gifts back by December 15th. Here is a full wish list.

      For more information, you can contact the Quincy YMCA at (217) 222-9622 or the Madonna House at (217) 224-7771, at 405 South 12th Street.
