Children may qualify to receive Christmas gifts through the “Share the Joy” program, available to low-income families with children up to 17 years old within the Enumclaw School District. Applications may be picked up at the Black Diamond Community Center, 31605 Third Ave (SR 169) in Black Diamond.

Applications are due Nov. 27, but organizers urge families to sign up right away so elves can get an early start on shopping. Parents can pick up gifts from 3 to 6 p.m. on Dec. 20.

Giving Trees with gift tags will be available in the community at the Black Diamond Community Center, St. Barbara Catholic Church, Lake Sawyer Grocery, The Loft Salon and Spa and the Black Diamond Library. Unwrapped gifts should be returned to the Community Center by Dec. 11.

For information, call Cheryl Hanson at 360-886-1011.
