The Family Giving Tree's Holiday Wish Drive offers a way to directly touch a child's life. We work with more than 250 Bay Area social service agencies that supply us with the names and wishes of the children they serve year-round. A wish card is printed for each child, detailing their age, gender, first name and their wish for a holiday gift. 1000+ Bay Area companies, schools and organizations participate in the program by displaying these wish cards for employees, clients, members, etc. By selecting a wish card, they pledge to purchase a special gift for a child in need. We depend almost entirely on volunteers to perform the tasks necessary to ensure all wishes are fulfilled; more than 6,000 volunteers help us receive, sort and distribute over 60,000 gifts at our warehouse in December!
