Giving Tree Charity Drive

By Lauren Enz Bowlus

As the holidays quickly approach most of us are scrambling to find the perfect gift for our loved ones, coordinating who is cooking what for Thanksgiving, stressing about family drama that is inevitable around Christmas Eve, or something else pertaining to family and the holidays. What most of us might overlook is there are those who do not have the luxury of worrying about stuff as mentioned above. For them the holidays are not the happiest time of the year but rather a time of stress to make sure the families health and necessities are met. Which can often times be a tough goal.

CrossFit Watsonville is partnering up with Pajaro Valley High School to help make families, as described above, holidays a little more merry. Alison N. has brought to our attention the high school’s Adopt a Family drive which is gathering gifts to give to the families within the Watsonville community so that they to can experience a merry Christmas.

Already trees have been donated to the families and giving trees have been set up for each family. The giving tree will have the items and sizes that will meet the family’s needs. All you have to do is choose which item to purchase to make a difference for these families the upcoming holiday season. The giving trees will be set up in the gym this Thursday and a collecting bin will be set up as well so that you can drop the purchased items off at the gym.

There is no pressure to participate; the CFW coaches thought it would be a great way for all of us to give back to the community!

The deadline to drop off donations will be December 11th, giving the high school enough time to wrap and prepare the gifts!

Just as a fyi, you can donate money in lue of purchasing a gift. However, because of time constraint on the high school, Coach Patrick would end up using the collected money to purchase gifts for the families. That way the high school’s team could wrap all gifts.

As always if you guys have any questions feel free to email Patrick (Patrick@crossfitwatsonville.com ) or myself (lauren@crossfitwatsonville.com )!
