The NM Giving Tree supports over 300 local kids each year with gifts, food baskets, fuel assistance, and much more. This will be our 9th year doing this program and each year it expands. This upcoming year, we anticipate donating nearly 1,500 gifts to kids from infancy up to 18 years of age. Over the past 8 years, the NM Giving Tree has sponsored over 1,100 kids and hope to support more this year
What I'm Raising Money For:
Yearly, it takes over $4,000 to offset costs of the gifts not taken from the tree and emergency requests that come in closer to the start of the holiday season.
Why You Should Give:
Every year, hundreds of families in our community struggle to provide the basic needs for a good holiday season. Some of our requests are as simple as socks and underwear, which demonstrates the lack of resources these families have. Our efforts are directed towards alleviating these insecurities. Over the past 8 years the NM Giving Tree has donated over 6,000 gifts!
