Pawhuska, Okla., (Wednesday, November 22, 2017) — The goal is for every child to receive a Christmas gift. Every year, the Osage Nation Financial Assistance Department (ONFAD) hosts the Annual Tree of Gifts to support the spirit of giving and provide children in need with a holiday that includes unwrapping presents that otherwise would not be there.
Helping is easy. There is a tree filled with ornaments with Christmas wish lists attached from local children. To donate, visit the Osage Nation Financial Assistance Department located at the new Welcome Center at 239 West 12th Street, Pawhuska, Okla., or contact the office at (918) 287-5325.
All gifts must be delivered to the ONFAD offices by December 18, 2017.
Financial Assistance is also requesting donations of gift bags, wrapping paper, bows, tape, and gift tags. There will also be an opportunity to help with gift wrapping and deliveries. Call (918) 287-5325 for more information.
