Family Tree Holiday Shop!
ABOUT FAMILY TREE HOLIDAY SHOP
Family Tree will be making a change to Holidays of Hope this year. Your support will help to make the holidays special for the individuals and families engaging with Family Tree on their journey to safety, healing and stability.
Family Tree plans to provide a holiday shopping experience for clients- Family Tree Holiday Shop. Donations will stock the shelves with special gifts and items needed to make a house a home.
Please email Holidays@thefamilytree.org to help make the holidays bright. We will reply to your email with a shopping list. The shopping lists reflect the most requested wants and needs items from our clients. By providing a shopping list, we hope to not only provide the opportunity for special gifts and surprises but also to meet basic needs.
The new Holiday Shopping Experience allows for a more client-centered approach. Parents and guardians will have the opportunity to shop for their children’s holiday wish list items and provide special gifts for the adults as well.
When can I start shopping?

What will the shopping experience be like?
Family Tree clients will shop for their families’ gifts and household needs at Family Tree’s Holiday Shop!
What happened to adopt-a-family?
It was time for Family Tree to make a change! Family Tree has grown over the years and it is tough to collect wish list from every client, collect the gifts, and deliver them all within a short period of time.
The Holiday Shop allows for family members to pick out gifts, wrap them and have them ready for the holiday celebrated in their household.
All gifts donated will go to support Family Tree clients and programs.
Can I help with shopping experience?
Yes, we would love to have your help! Volunteer support is absolutely necessary to pull off a successful holiday shop! Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to let her know you want to volunteer during the holidays!

Can I give gift cards?
Yes! During the holiday season, families appreciate gift cards as a way to shop on their own, and also for age groups like teens and young adults. Gift cards allow unique needs to be met and are extremely helpful to have available during this season and beyond.
