Neighborhood House Holiday Giving Tree

The holiday season is approaching, and Neighborhood House is again offering area organizations an opportunity to help make the holidays special for local children via the Holiday Giving Tree program. The program provides gifts for the children of families in our service area of Rochester, Rochester Hills, Auburn Hills, Oakland Township, Addison Township, and Leonard who are struggling to make ends meet. 

Here is how you can help~
 
Holiday Giving Tree participants have three options: 
 

  • On-line Giving Tree: Request an electronic list of gift requests that can be shared with your customers/members/staff/students through your website, newsletter, or social media. This is a Sign-up Genius link created specifically for your organization. Upon request, we can also provide a unique QR code to take your supporters directly to your online tree. The purchaser will return the unwrapped gifts to your location by December 6.
 
  • Physical tree: Display a tree with gift tags in a prominent area of your organization. You provide the tree and Neighborhood House will provide gift tags listing specific gift items. Your customers/members/staff/students can select tags from the tree, purchase the gifts, and return the unwrapped gifts to your location by December 6.  
 
  • Specific collection of items such as board games, hoodies, gift cards, hats/gloves/mittens.  
 
Unwrapped gifts are due by December 7 to Neighborhood House. You have two options: 
 
  • Request that a Neighborhood House volunteer pick up gifts from your location  
  • Drop off gifts to Neighborhood House / 1720 S. Livernois Road / Rochester Hills / 48307
 
Additional  information: 
  • Online shopping is encouraged! After a paper tag or Sign-up Genius item is selected by a donor, they are welcome to purchase the gift from their favorite e-retailer and have the item shipped directly to Neighborhood House.  We will also have an Amazon wish list link available with suggested items: https://amzn.to/2ZKFP1H 
  • Additional drop-off locations are available for your customers/members/staff/students who are not regularly at your building. Items may be dropped off any time before December 7 to:  
Neighborhood House (1720 S. Livernois Road, Rochester Hills)
