To Our Donors & Supporters...

Thank you! Thank you for supporting our mission and our efforts throughout the year. Through volunteering, in kind donations and financial gifts... The Giving Tree only works because of YOU.

 End of the year giving: As the year comes to a close, please consider an end of the year, tax deductible donation to The Giving Tree. Your donations inspire and educate hundreds of our Giving Tree kids. Your support also has such an impact on thousands of underprivileged individuals. Thank you for thinking of us this holiday season.
New fundraising opportunity: We have created a campaign to raise awareness and funds to help us offer a giving project to some of our local school students. Share and spread the kindness.

Visit our GoFundMe page today to make a donation that will directly impact individuals experiencing homelessness.
Thank You to Our Restaurant Sponsors
