Holiday Giving

Share the gift of holiday joy! Help us make the holidays brighter for parents involved in our programs.

Holiday Shop

Each December, The Family Tree organizes a Holiday Shop for vulnerable families who participate in our programs. Parents and caregivers sign up to meet with our shopping helpers and are given the opportunity to choose gifts for their children - at no cost to them. But we need your help in getting new, unwrapped gifts for boys and girls ages 0-16, including:

Gifts In Honor

For the person who has everything, donors may give a gift in honor of a friend, family member or colleague. Donations to The Family Tree will support innovative programs and services that build stronger families by giving parents the tools they need to raise healthy, productive, and competent adults. A holiday card will be mailed to the honoree and can include a personal message. To donate online, click here.
