The Eugene Active 20-30 club is excited to once again be doing the Giving Tree at the Valley River Center. The Giving Tree is an annual project the club does to provide holiday presents for children that might otherwise not receive gifts this holiday season. Gifts include: clothing, toys, electronics, outdoor and sporting equipment, and much more.
The Giving Tree will be running this year November 5th-December 12th.
Gifts will be due back to Valley River Center by 8:30pm on December 12th.
*** UPDATE: If you still have a gift that needs to be returned, please return to the bin by 8:45pm on Thursday, December 13, 2018.***
The Giving Tree has continued to grow each year. We are proud to say over 2,300 presents were returned for children in our community in 2017. Thanks to Valley River Center and many great people in our community, we are looking to continue this great tradition.
We are in our 17th year for the Giving Tree and are happy to continue this incredible tradition in partnership with Valley River Center. The tree in Valley River Center is located outside of JC Penney mall entrance near the Cafe Aroma coffee shop. This year, we will also be taking financial donations. Gifts typically range from $15-$30. If you or your company would be interested in donating, we now have a secure PayPal link set up on the Eugene Active 20-30 Club’s website. You can visit the specific Giving Tree page at eugene2030.org/giving-tree. Checks may be mailed to Eugene Active 20-30 Club, P.O. Box 365, Eugene, OR 97440. Please put “Giving Tree” in the check’s memo.
All donations will be used for additional presents for children in our community, and your donation will go a long way helping improve the holidays for local children. If you have any questions or would like to help with our goal of providing gifts for every child on our ornaments, please contact us!
