Every year the holidays bring smiles, but only to some. Thousands of Bay Area residents don’t get to experience the joy of the season because they can’t afford to. Family Giving Tree (FGT) believes everyone should have a chance to receive a gift regardless of their situation. For 30 years, we have been standing in the gap granting specific holiday wishes to children, seniors, and adults experiencing homelessness.

Please join us this holiday season and have an impact in your community.
