Give a Joyful Holiday!

In the midst of the holiday hustle, I wanted to take the time to share the updates of our 2019 Holiday Wish Drive to deliver joy to 80,000 children, seniors, and individuals in need across the Bay Area. In an effort to share the journey of wishes, Family Giving Tree has added scanning to our process. We will be able to track the individual wishes from agency request to Drive Leader distribution, back to the warehouse and into the arms of the person who requested the gift. Our goal is to be able to share more stories like Haydee’s: 

A single mother working multiple jobs to support her two children, Haydee was suddenly struck with a debilitating injury. With medical bills piling up and the inability to work, Haydee’s world came to a sudden stop as her expenses kept coming and she had no way to provide for her boys and parents. In her words, Family Giving Tree “made Christmas for us. There was something to open that day.”

Everything can change in an instant, and the high cost of Bay Area living is a barrier to holiday celebration for many. You can make a difference and deliver joy to those like Heydee and her family. While thousands of gifts have already been distributed, many remain unfulfilled. Bring joy to someone in need today by supporting Family Giving Tree's Holiday Wish Drive!

Season of Celebration

Think back to your favorite holiday celebration. What did it include? Friends? Family? Food? Gifts? For many, the holidays look just like this. But for others: too many, the holidays are a reminder that theirs is dimmed: unable to afford gifts for loved ones or know that they won’t receive one. Left out of the reverie.

This year make it a part of your celebration to provide gifts for those who would otherwise go without. Join Family Giving Tree to provide 80,000 gifts across the twelve counties of the Bay Area. Working with over 400 social service agencies, with FGT your gifts are able to brighten the holidays for so many children, individuals, and seniors in need.

Celebrate the season. Deliver joy.

Being a part of their Support Network

School is back in session and thanks to you, over 41,000 Bay Area students in need walked into the classroom prepared with the essential school supplies they need to have a successful school year. 

A single backpack doesn’t seem like a big difference but it makes a huge impact for all. Without the worry of interrupting a lesson to ask for paper and a pencil, students are free to learn. And without the extra costs of school supplies, parents and teachers alike are able to pay rent, buy groceries, and pay for transportation.

Thank you for making a difference in their lives. A backpack does more than just help a student learn, it helps their whole network support them better!
