Lincolnville residents can contact Jodi Hanson to participate in the Lincolnville-only program of the Tree of Giving. This program helps families get holiday gifts for their children. Applications can be filled out by adults for two gifts for each child. After the applications are made, Hanson makes a tag for each present and hangs it on her tree. Then, citizens go into the town office, pick up a tag, get the present, wrap it, and return it to the town office for the children.
