What We Do

Sample Tag

The Galway Giving Tree is a programme that works in conjunction with Galway businesses to collect Christmas gifts for underprivileged children and adults here in Galway who would otherwise go without.

The programme is very straightforward:

  • The Galway Giving Tree partners with local social service agencies to gather the Christmas ‘wishes’ of needy children and adults.
  • The ‘wishes’ are printed onto gift tags.
  • The gift tags are hung from Christmas Trees located at ‘Host Businesses’ where they are accessible to employees / the public.
  • If someone wishes to donate, they simply select a gift tag from the tree, purchase the gift and attach the gift tag, and then place the gift under the tree.
  • Gifts will be collected by Galway Giving Tree elves and distributed in time for Christmas.
  • NOTE: We do NOT accept cash donations

This is a simple programme that makes a big difference to a child and their family. Last year we delivered over 1800 gifts to local children and adults and much needed supplies to those in need.
