If you are an SV2 Partner or prospective Partner with children ages 4-12, please join us for one of our favorite events of the year, working with the Family Giving Tree! SV2 Teens are also welcome to join us.
The Family Giving Tree partners with Bay Area social service agencies to collect specific gift wishes from children with whom they work year-round. Typically, we are assigned to either wrap gifts, organize groups of gifts, or “shop” for gifts in the makeshift store.
We’ve also been invited to make donations to help Family Giving Tree meet their gift needs for the season. This is completely optional but we hope you will consider purchasing a gift, even if you’re not able to join us on December 14. You can contribute in one of two ways:
- Select a gift from our SV2 Amazon Wish List and have it shipped to SV2 offices by December 5 (we’ll take the gifts to Family Giving Tree)
- Silicon Valley Social Venture Fund, Sobrato Center for Nonprofits-Redwood Shores, 350 Twin Dolphin Drive Suite 103, Redwood City, CA 94065
- When prompted for shipping details, there are no additional instructions nor access code needed; weekday delivery is preferred
- Online giving directly to Family Giving Tree here
