News & Events

The Giving Tree

The Giving Tree is a gift drive that will put clothing and gifts in the hands of 500+ children in need across Northern Orange & Sullivan Counties this holiday season!

Giving Tree host sites will display a non-denominational holiday tree with ornaments that list a child’s first name, age, and size/hobby information.

From November 6 through December 1, donors can sign up, take an ornament and return a gift for the child listed on their ornament.

From December 1 through December 22, the Club staff and volunteers will collect and distribute the gifts to Club kids and other children in need in our area. We help our Club kids and our campers, and then we also open the drive up to as many children as we can serve from communities outside our service area too!

If you are interested in sponsoring a child, but cannot visit one of our host sites to pick up an ornament, we're happy to email it to you!

Please just give us a call at (845) 342-8833!
