Giving Tree

The Giving Tree is back for 2021!

For nearly 30 years, we have partnered with the Mall of America—and YOU—to ensure children and adults alike have access to essential items as they receive supportive services from Catholic Charities.

“We rely extensively on the generosity of Giving Tree donations,” shares Gretchen Olmscheid, Catholic Charities’ procurement specialist. “Gifts of clothing and personal items like warm boots, coats, and natural hair care products—things that we sometimes take for granted—can really make a difference in a person’s life.”

Demand for our services has increased this year, and we are deeply grateful for your generous giving. Thank you!

Step 1. Select a requested gift from the 2021 Giving Tree Wish List.

Step 2. Shop for your selected gift at your favorite store, online, or using AmazonSmile.

Step 3. Drop off your unwrapped gift at the Warming House or at the Catholic Charities Distribution Center.

Interested in Making the Giving Tree part of your Workplace Tradition?

Has your business, parish, or community group collected Giving Tree donations in the past? Or is this something you’d like to do to help this season? Catholic Charities is excited to share resources and support for hosting your own Giving Tree! It’s easy to create ornaments, set up a drop-off location, and share our fun graphics in a church bulletin or on a community Facebook page.
