Giving Tree

Our annual Monte Vista Holiday Gift Drive

Giving Tree is a time-honored Monte Vista tradition that helps support our penguin families who need extra assistance during the winter holidays. We have served hundreds of families over several years due to the generosity of the Monte Vista community. We provide much-needed clothing items, toys, books, and food bags (for Thanksgiving and Winter breaks).

It takes so much to make Giving Tree come together each year, and we are always honored and amazed by our community's generosity! If you would like to volunteer your time, sponsor a child or family, or donate items or food, please reach out to us at at any time of the year. Thank you!

Monte Vista Giving Tree 2021: In progress. Please see details below, and thanks in advance for your help and generosity!

2021 Giving Tree details:

By now you should have received an email from your child’s teacher containing a sign-up Genius link for the Giving Tree. Thank you for your donations so far! The Giving Tree ends on November 17th and we still need your help!

There are still many items you can sign-up to donate. The Giving Tree committee will be collecting your donations on the front lawn of Monte Vista Elementary school from 9am-12pm on Saturday, November 13th and 12:45pm-2:30pm on Wednesday, November 17th. Please clearly label your item with the student # from the sign-up and leave it unwrapped. Please email if you have any questions or you need to make alternative drop-off arrangements.
