ELLSWORTH - If you're looking to help out less fortunate families this holiday now is your chance.

Motifs hair and tanning salon has a donation box inside where you can drop items off any time they are open until December 12th.


This organization called "the sharing tree" was started by one women Alice Grindle in 2008.


She gets referrals from local organizations, agencies, and social workers for people who really need the help.


Winty Rose director of the "Sharinf Tree" said "A lot of the people that we help are alone on the holidays, or they lost their job. So it really puts a financial relief on these families."


The sharing tree also aids with back to school program, the general assistance fund, and the group's diaper fund.
