HGF Angel Tree

The Annual Giving Tree is up at Highland Goffe's Falls! Every year, this tree is set up to help families that are in need at HGF. The Giving Tree coincides with the "Toy Drive" that is sponsored by the Student Council.
Items on the tree are essentials only, such as clothing or winter boots and coats.

In the past, the Giving Tree has been supported by HGF staff. This year, there was some interest at a PTA meeting to open it up to all HGF families for donations. The tree will be available until next Friday, December 18th. If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Towne,

There is also a Toy Drive happening. Learn more here.
