The Giving Tree
of Boca Raton
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 over 30 years ago as a small social action group within Temple Beth El providing holiday gifts for a few local families in need.
We engage with 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.
