Holiday Spirit Tree at Machias Dental

Community members and patients of Machias Dental are invited to keep the magic in the holidays by purchasing a gift for a Washington County child whose family will struggle to afford the luxury of gifts this season.  For the seventeenth year, the Holiday Spirit Tree at Machias Dental is bedecked with paper ornaments that bear the age, gender, and wish list of a local child.  You can provide a bright spot for a Washington County child by stopping at the dental office located on U.S Route 1 in Machias, selecting a child’s wish list from the tree, and returning the gift tag and unwrapped presents to Machias Dental no later than Monday, December 16th.

 Anyone may stop at the Machias Dental office to take an ornament from the tree.  If you are not a shopper, donations are accepted and volunteers from the locally-based group “Let’s All Have a Merrier Christmas” will do the shopping for you, as they have for the past 29 years.

 One does not need to be a patient of Machias Dental to participate.  You just need to have “elf potential”.  To select an ornament and gift recipient, stop by Machias Dental at 271 Main Street (U.S. Route 1) in Machias.  Office hours are Monday-Friday 8:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m.
