The Giving Tree
The Giving Tree Project runs each year to provide Christmas presents to those children in Coventry who otherwise wouldn’t receive them. Last year (2019) we were able to give presents to 896 children from 362 families!
The families in need are referred from agencies or self-refer and we register them at locations across the city to receive presents. This year we are having to do things differently and are registering families with as little face to face contact as possible. We are still looking to receive new families though and please do spread the word if you know anyone who will struggle to buy Christmas presents for their children.
Many people help us by donating gifts and money to ensure that each child who is registered receives a gift. This year that is slightly harder so we are asking for gifts to be donated via our Amazon Gift List and money to be given via our Go fund me page - this way we can still pass the presents on without the concerns about quarantine and social distancing of those delivering to us. A number of individuals, churches and organisations are involved each year in order to make sure this project happens, we are so grateful to you please continue to give this year in spite of the strange circumstances.

This is an amazing opportunity to share God’s love with the people of Coventry. If you would like more information please contact Sarah White (firstname.lastname@example.org). Updates on this project will be provided on our Facebook page in the run up to Christmas.
