Winter Themed
Take Home Service Kits
Sponsored by Univest

Thanks to a generous grant from Univest, we are looking for 50 families to take part in our Winter- themed Take Home Service Kits. These kits focus on food insecurity and homelessness and are a great opportunity for your kids to take part in 'giving back' and 'helping those in need'.

We are offering one FREE kit per family. Additional kits are available for $30. Please reach out to reserve your kit today!
Thank you!
Virtual Trivia Success!

Thank you to everyone who participated in our Virtual Trivia Night. Not exactly what we had in mind for our annual fundraiser, but fun was had by all who joined us!

We are always so moved by the support we receive from our Giving Tree families. All funds raised that night will help us in continuing our mission of educating children about giving back.
Holiday Kindness

During the holiday season it is easy to get wrapped up in the hustle bustle, whatever that may look like this year. Over the next several weeks take a step back, take a breath and spread some kindness together. Check out our list of ways to bring some of the magic back into your family’s holiday.
