Service Hours Needed??

During these uncertain times, we are all finding ourselves needing to get a bit creative. Students may find themselves in need of fulfilling service hours for honors programs, religious groups or might just want to grow the giving spirit. 

Fall Take Home Service Kits

Where our in-person live events are put on hold, keep in mind we have our Take Home Service Kits, available for your convenience. Our new Fall Kits will benefit underprivileged students with a little extra gift for a teacher in these at risk schools. Check out all of our kits here or reach out to us. We are happy to customize service kits and opportunities for you!
Neighbor Service Leader

Calling all Giving Tree youth!! Become a Service Leader for your neighborhood by organizing Take Home Service Kits. Perhaps even organize a virtual service project party! Take orders for the kits, deliver the kits to the families and collect them afterward to bring to The Giving Tree. We take care of the rest! All Neighbor Service Leaders will receive a special certificate.

National Assisted Living Week
September 13 - 19

According to the National Center for Assisted Living, there are more than 28,000 assisted living facilities across the country. More than one million seniors reside in these facilities which provide housing, medical care, meals and social activities.

Here are some great ways to celebrate National Assisted Living Week:
Corporate Sponsorships

The Giving Tree has put together a new and exciting program for our schools. We are looking for local companies to consider sponsoring these service projects for our students. Please reach out to learn more.

Giving is FUN!

Due to COVID, many of our fundraising efforts and donations have been affected.  The donations may have slowed down… but the need for giving certainly has not. Please consider making a donation to help us continue our mission.
