Through your generosity, the Holiday Giving Tree provides Christmas presents for low-income families and individuals that need emergency holiday assistance or are involved with Lazarus House and the programs that are provided to serve people in need. For many, it is the first time they are able to give their children a Christmas present.

Gift Purchasing Guidelines

In order to best serve our guests, we will provide you with a list of gift ideas to choose from.   These items are most often needed.

Note: Please wait to be contacted by a staff member before purchasing gifts for the Giving Tree. Thank you!

Please do not wrap these gifts, but feel free to include wrapping paper with your donation. If you would like to donate to the Giving Tree Program, please note that all items must be new.

The last day for dropping off Giving Tree gifts will be December 12, 2019.

Your donations help us provide toys, clothing, household goods, and more to make the holidays brighter for families served by our programs.
