Family Giving Tree: Granting Wishes for Joy & Learning

Posted: November 27, 2018

Bellarmine's annual holiday drive for Family Giving Tree (FGT) runs from November 28 through December 10. If you would like to fulfill the holiday wish of a low-income child, teen or senior citizen, you've got options!

  • Purchase a specific gift by pulling a wish card in the CSP offices in O'Donnell Hall.
  • Purchase a specific gift online via the Family Giving Tree's online wishlist.
  • Make a donation of $35 (or any amount) online* for the purchase of a child's gift.
  • Purchase a gift card/certificate from Safeway or Target for a low-income family.

Wish card gifts and gift cards should be returned to the CSP offices by Monday, December 10. We'd love to be able to provide each gift recipient with a new toothbrush if you can add that to your shopping list.

A Christmas heart is a giving heart. We hope you will join us in partnership with FGT, in embracing and growing the spirit of the season.
