Governor Eddie Calvo and Lieutenant Governor Ray Tenorio are asking residents to reach out to the less fortunate during the upcoming holiday season by helping the Sugar Plum Tree project.
“These are difficult times for so many people here at home and throughout the world,” Governor Calvo said.  “But we can still help make a difference for those who are finding themselves on hard times, especially during the holiday season.  I encourage anyone who may have a few extra dollars this season to reach out and help brighten Christmas morning for a child or manamko’ in need.”
The Calvo Tenorio administration is excited to celebrate their first holiday tradition together by participating in this year’s Sugar Plum Tree event.  The non-profit organization is celebrating 27 years of brightening the holiday season for Guam’s struggling families.
“I know everyone is facing one challenge or another these days,” Lieutenant Governor Tenorio said.  “But I hope everyone can join us in making a small sacrifice so that someone less fortunate can feel the Christmas spirit this year.”
The Sugar Plum Tree organization is going on 27 years of providing the community with a way to reach out and support the less fortunate during the holiday season.  Christmas trees with “adoption cards” bearing wish lists are provided for residents and businesses to select and purchase gifts to be distributed to recipients prior to Christmas day by Sugar Plum Tree volunteers.  The wishes come from Guamanians, young and old, who are poor, alone or disabled.
A Christmas tree is on display in Governor Calvo’s Chambers.  Governor’s Office employees will be donating gifts and participating in the Sugar Plum Tree’s “Big Wrap” event.  Governor Calvo and Lt. Governor Tenorio encourage all government of Guam employees and members of the community to support the Sugar Plum Tree and other community organizations to help spread the holiday spirit.
