Giving Tree

Give a local family in need a Christmas to remember!

Last year, thousands of families in communities across Ireland celebrated Christmas with the help of schools, businesses, and people just like you.  

Unfortunately, this year even more people need your support.

Please take part in the Giving Tree today and donate gifts to make Christmas that little bit brighter for children and families who are struggling in your community.

The idea is simple… 

  1. We provide your company, school or group with posters and tags for the ‘Giving Tree’. Each tag lists a person and age group (e.g. Girl 4-7).
  2. Employees and members of your group then take a tag from the tree and buy a new gift for the child or adult on their tag.
  3. Pop the unwrapped gifts under your organisations Giving Tree or collection point.
  4. When your collection is over, drop the gifts to your local Regional Office or drop off point.
  5. These gifts are then distributed by SVP to families in need, just in time for Christmas.

Have a look at our Giving Tree Guidelines for more information.
