Holiday shoppers have an opportunity to help underprivileged children this season at the Macy's Giving Tree. Macy's has set up a Giving Tree on the upper level in the shoe department at the Coronado Mall.  Shoppers can make donations from Monday, November 24 through Sunday, December 21.

The gifts will be given to five local programs including the FOCUS programs- Los Pasos, SELECTT and GRO in the UNM Department of Pediatrics which assists families with children from birth to age three by providing medical, legal, home visiting and early intervention services.

Other Albuquerque-area centers receiving gifts from the Giving Tree are Christina Kent Day Nursery, St. Mark's in the Valley Day School, Michael's Place Childcare Center and La Mesa Early Childhood Center.
