LOCKPORT – For the ninth consecutive year, Niagara County Courthouse employees have erected a “Giving Tree” in the building and are seeking gifts from county workers and the public to benefit three local charities.

This year’s beneficiaries are Casey House, a Niagara Falls shelter; the Twin Cities Outreach Clothes Closet in North Tonawanda; and the Salvation Army in Lockport.

Gifts sought for placement under the tree include new and unwrapped winter clothes, family hygiene products, art and school supplies, crafts, sports balls, duffle bags and backpacks, and board games suitable for ages 12 to 17.

Cash donations also are welcomed at the major offices in the courthouse. The deadline for donations is Dec. 17.
