Temple Financial collects ‘Giving Tree’ donations

Toys and nonperishable food are accepted through Dec. 20

During this holiday season, Temple Financial is once again having its annual Giving Tree on display to help local families in need.

The tree, located inside the Temple Financial office at 532 N.E. Third Ave., Ste. 200, in Camas, features ornamental tags with the ages of children and their likes, sizes and Christmas wishes.

Presents will be wrapped and hand-delivered just before Christmas to the families that have been adopted.

Steve Temple is the co-owner of Temple Financial with Chris Foster. Now in its 12th year, the Giving Tree has grown to provide for as many as four families each year since the tradition began.

“It’s something we all look forward to,” Foster said. “I’m hoping we’re able to bless even more families and their kids this year.”

The project is open to the public as well as Temple Financial clients.

Donations of unwrapped toys and nonperishable food will be accepted through Friday, Dec. 20.

“Let’s make this the best year yet,” Foster said.
