In order to receive a gift from the Tree of Sharing, please follow these steps:
- First go to the participating agencies list and find an agency that is appropriate for your situation.
- Click on their link, if available, and look for their contact person. It is only through these agencies that you can receive a gift. This is also for your sake and ensures confidentiality, so please do not be afraid to contact them.
For holiday gifts, the agencies establish their gift list by mid-October. If you have missed this deadline Tree of Sharing cannot benefit you at this moment, however you might try contacting these other charitable organizations: Toys For Tots, Salvation Army, or The Spokesman Review Christmas Bureau. In addition you may call 211 for a list of other charitable organizations active during the holiday season.
And please remember – all requests are confidential and we take great care that both giver and receiver remain anonymous.
