Holiday Wish Drive

Family Giving Tree began to add value and deliver joy to the community. For our Holiday Wish Drive, that means we make every effort to provide the exact gift they wished for. That’s why we look at every wish that comes through our database and question some that come through to verify it is what they wished for. 

For many years, requests were coming in that we used to flag as unusual, like a 7-year-old boy asking for a Barbie. But over the years, we learned that children, regardless of gender, ask for all types of toys because, at the end of the day, all toys are for all children. 

For example, this past Holiday, we received this story from a partner agency. “Gina was so excited to get a helmet and a skateboard. Other boys told her she can’t skate and that it’s just for boys. She was so excited and almost cried. She was very thankful!”

We are so happy that we offer all age-appropriate toys to all children because it fosters joy and removes stereotypes of what you can do and what you can like.
