Giving Tree

Are you a local business or group that would like to give back items in a bigger way? Get a Giving Tree and help our Center meet all of our needs.

When your company requests a Giving Tree, we will deliver a tree to your business with assorted tags hanging from it. Each tag has a different Center need including household cleaners, laundry supplies, children’s activities, medicines and gift cards. We ask, that you and your employees or clients, purchase the items off the tags for our children. At the end of the month, we will pick up the tree, take a picture and share all of your hard work on our Facebook Page.

To request a tree, please contact Ashleigh Sanders at ASanders@WhaleyChildren.org or 810-234-3603.
