The Giving Tree
of Boca Raton

Meeting One Need, One Life, One Day

The Giving Tree of Boca Raton spreads kindness, dignity, and hope to those in need in our local Palm Beach County community. Each recipient is treated as if they are a member of our own family. We strive to identify and support the needs of children, young adults, families and seniors who do not have access to basic necessities.

Our Community Programs

Serving our local Palm Beach County community for over 30 years

We are a 100% volunteer grassroots organization consisting of a steering committee of 4, along with hundreds of volunteers throughout Boca Raton. We help foster children, families down on their luck, homeless teens, and victims of tragic circumstances such as: fire, medical issues, and death of a parent.

The Giving Tree was started by Myra Singer z”l, in the late 1980s from her garage with just a few friends. In a desire to help children and families from the Wayne Barton Center, Myra’s mission was to make Christmas a cheerful time for all ensuring everyone had a holiday gift and most of all, joy and hope!

Keeping Myra’s mission moving forward, we engage in local agencies, schools and other community organizations to identify specific individual needs of children, families and seniors in our community who would benefit from The Giving Tree resources.

With the support of Temple Beth El clergy, congregants and the community at large, The Giving Tree has expanded to serve over 2000 children and seniors per holiday season and hundreds more recipients throughout the year with our 3 main programs; “Holiday Giving”, “Quiet Giving” and “Back To School.

The Giving Tree does not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, national origin, color, sexual orientation, age, or disability.
