Caring Tree 2019

Caring Tree

Since 2005, the Two Rivers YMCA Caring Tree program has helped nearly 1,000 families in our community during the Christmas holiday season with our members' generous acts of giving gifts. 

Every year, we display a Christmas tree in our lobby with tags that members can pull and use to purchase gifts unique to that child. (The child's name is kept private).

Gifts are then wrapped by YMCA staff and volunteers and presented to families at the special Gift-Giving event.


HOW TO GIVE

The Caring Tree will be displayed at the Two Rivers YMCA starting December 2nd

  1. Pick a tag off the tree Don't lose track of the tag!
  2. Start shopping! (using the information on the tag to help you choose a few gifts for the child)
  3. Return the gifts by December 18th to the Y with the child's Caring Tree Tag attached to the shopping bag. Please do not wrap the gifts.

YMCA staff and volunteers will then wrap and label the gifts for each child.

We are also accepting donations of Christmas wrapping paper, tape, and/or boxes!
If you would like to volunteer to help wrap gifts, please contact Daisy Moran for more information: dmoran@ymcatr.org
