Holiday Giving Tree

Main Content

In 2021, United Way's goal for the Holiday Giving Tree remains the same: to share gifts with our neighbors that may otherwise go without. Last year all gifts were matched with your help. By making a financial gift to United Way's Holiday Giving Tree program, we are able to mobilize gifts for community while supporting small, local businesses.

For the continued safety of volunteers, families, staff and our community, for this year's Holiday Giving Tree effort we are offering a menu of options to participate.

Purchase Gifts

We are halfway to our goal of filling over 9,000 wishes for local individuals and families this year.

Each donation of $30 will be used to purchase and directly ship requested gifts to the participating nonprofits that, whenever possible, is being purchased from local and Black-owned and women-owned small businesses.


Corporations and Groups

As a corporate organization or community group you can select from a variety of engagement options including a customized giving link, corporate sponsorship of an agency's wish list, and printed gift tags for personal shopping.

The deadline for tag requests is October 15th and there is a minimum request of 25 tags. Fill out this form for more information.
