The holidays in Wedgwood is a giving season with opportunities to support local outreach. In businesses on 35th Ave NE clustered around the intersection of NE 85th Street you will find Giving Trees with tags for items sought by local charities. Take a tag, purchase a gift for a needy family and bring the tagged gift back to the tree. The outreach is through Meadowbrook Community Care (MC2) and includes help for children at Ryther. Giving Trees can be found at Homestreet Bank, Cafe Van Gogh, Wedgwood Hair Studio, Rite-Aid, Wedgwood Ale House, and Cafe Javasti.
There is also a Toys for Tots donation station in Wedgwood: bring a new, unwrapped toy to Woodlawn Optical at 8032 35th Ave NE.
