Christmas Giving Trees help Children in Need on the SouthSide

Posted in


Bethlehem, PA (December 2, 2019) – This holiday season the SouthSide Arts District is bringing joy to children of South Bethlehem with a wonderful new program – The Giving Trees. Fifteen Arts District shops and restaurants will have a Christmas Giving Tree on display with very special paper ornaments. Each ornament will have listed a specific gift for a child in need on the SouthSide. Our hope throughout the holiday season is for shoppers to take ornaments off the tree and come back with those specific gifts listed, and place them under their Giving Tree. Giving Trees will be on display starting Monday, December 2nd until December 21st when presents will be delivered.

Giving Trees can be found at the following locations:

  1. American Male – 316 E. 3rd Street, Suite A
  2. Banana Factory – 25 W. 3rd Street #300
  3. Bonn Place Brewing Company – 310-14 Taylor Street

While promoting an intercultural understanding in the Lehigh Valley.
