Giving Tree Community Partners

 

Thank you for your interest in supporting holiday programs at Tri-Lakes Cares. Many of the families we serve would not receive gifts during the holiday season without your support. Your generosity is greatly appreciated and a tremendous blessing to our community.

Community partners can choose to host an electronic Giving Tree (e-Giving Tree) to support local families, sponsor youth and senior citizens with gifts and/or gift cards, provide financial contributions, and collect food donations. Registration for TLC’s Giving Tree and Holiday Food programs will occur from October 6, 2020, through November 7, 2020.

This year, we are taking social distancing precautions due to COVID-19; thus, we have made some alterations. Instead of distributing physical ornaments on trees that were in the community in previous years, we will have electronic ornaments available on SignUpGenius.com. SignUpGenius is an online tool that helps agencies plan events that require contributions from guests.

After registering for an e-Giving Tree, each community partner will be given a specific link to SignUpGenius.com on or about Friday, November 13, 2020, for their business/church with the requested amount of ornaments. Community partners can then share this link with their employees, patrons, and congregants in order to select ornaments that represent youth and senior gift requests. The collection of these fulfilled gifts will be at the direction of their respective business or church.

We ask that all collected gifts and food items be brought to TLC’s distribution center (location to be determined) no later than Friday, December 11, 2020. Gifts and food items will subsequently be distributed to youth and seniors on Saturday, December 19, 2020.

For more information and to register, please visit our Giving Tree Community Partner Sign-Up Form.

This form can also be used to sponsor a senior citizen or youth, arrange to host a holiday food drive, or to make a financial contribution.

Thank you for your generosity!
