Joy DeliveredPeninsula Associates is proud to support Family Giving Tree this holiday season. Since 1990, the Family Giving Tree has provided gifts for over one million San Francisco Bay Area children, families and seniors from low-income households. To fulfill the exact holiday gift wish of a child, adult or senior in need may not seem like much, but for someone who may not otherwise receive a gift, it’s everything. That single, specially chosen gift lets them know that someone in the community is thinking of them.

For those interested in joining us, there are two ways to participate:

  1. Select a gift tag from one of our offices to purchase a specific item to donate and drop off the gift in our collection bin between November 12th and December 7th. Collection bins will be available in our Menlo Park, San Mateo, Santa Cruz and San Jose offices.
  2. Use the online Virtual Giving Tree platform anytime during the holiday drive.  Instructions will be provided in each office.

Family Giving Tree – Granting Children’s Wishes for Joy and Learning

Vision: The Family Giving Tree envisions a world where every child is made to feel like a valuable and empowered part of their community through a shared belief in the power of giving.

Mission: The Family Giving Tree fulfills the exact holiday wishes and provides backpacks filled with school supplies to those children in the most need in our communities while inspiring the values of kindness, philanthropy and volunteerism.

The Bay Area ranks as one of the world’s most affluent areas, yet more than 800,000 Bay Area residents are living at or below the poverty line and one out of every four children here lives in poverty.  These statistics are even more startling because it’s greater than the national average. 

Since 1990, the Family Giving Tree has provided gifts for over one million San Francisco Bay Area children, families and seniors from low-income households. We believe that everyone should experience the joy of the holidays through the receipt of a gift and more than half of these gifts have fulfilled exact holiday gift wishes.
