Giving Tree

Be a Secret Santa with SVP

The Society of St. Vincent de Paul provides help to thousands of families at Christmas, which includes gift vouchers, toys for small children, gifts for young people as well as gifts for older adults. These gifts are distributed by our network of local volunteers.
We would be so grateful if your company, school or group would like to be Secret Santas and take part in the Giving Tree. 

We will provide you with:

  • Tags for your Giving Tree which can be hung on your Christmas tree or handed out to those taking part
  • Posters to put up around your organisation
  • A list of suggested gifts for relevant age groups
  • Delivery information and a delivery docket to go with your gift donations
  • A certificate of appreciation to display on a noticeboard

You will:

  • Collect all donations by the cut-off date for your region to allow ample turnaround time for our volunteers visiting families in need
  • Ensure all gifts are unwrapped so that they are easily identifiable for our volunteers 
  • Include gift vouchers for teenagers and older adults as well as toys for small children
  • Ensure that all gifts are new and not second hand – minimum value of €10 please

Please send us by email:

  • Organisation name
  • Organisation email
  • Postal Address
  • No. of tags required

For further information and support please contact the East Regional Office (Dublin, Kildare and Wicklow) on or ring 01 819 8414/8416.
Cut-off date for dropping off toys is Friday 6th December.
Thank you so much for your support – Christmas wouldn’t be the same without you!
