This July, the Humane Society of the Treasure Coast will celebrate Christmas in July with Giving Trees at its two thrift store locations in Stuart and at the Palm City shelter. Additionally, from July 6-31, the stores are encouraging shoppers to get a jump on Christmas wishlists by purchasing featured items.
The Giving Trees feature tags representing specific needs and corresponding donation amounts that will benefit the humane society’s Palm City shelter. The trees are located at the shelter (4100 SW Leighton Farm Ave.); Thrift Store Central (2585 SE Federal Hwy, Stuart); and Thrift Store North (1099 NW 21st St, Stuart).
There are several ways for the public to participate:
- Pull a tag from one of the trees and donate accordingly or visit the Virtual Giving Tree online to donate. Alternatively, supporters can call a humane society Christmas elf at (772) 600-3216 to make a Christmas in July donation over the phone.
- Shop at either of the humane society’s thrift stores or on the humane society’s Amazon Wish List. When supporters shop from the humane society’s Wish List, Amazon automatically ships their order directly to the shelter.
- Donate a wrapped present to be placed under the Christmas in July tree at the shelter or thrift store.
“The purpose of this creative campaign is to celebrate the spirit of giving that brings us so much joy and happiness, while providing valuable and necessary care to homeless and helpless animals at our community’s open-access, no-kill shelter,” said Sarah Fisher, the humane society’s communications manager.
