Support Family Giving Tree's Holiday Wish Drive

November 01, 2019 • Community

Stanford Research Park is proud to support Family Giving Tree, a charitable organization committed to serving children and individuals most in need throughout the Bay Area. Since 1990, Family Giving Tree has served over 1.5 million Bay Area individuals living in poverty and is looking to us to support their work spreading joy and kindness.

This year, for their annual Holiday Wish Drive, Family Giving Tree has set a goal to fulfill holiday wishes and give gifts to 80,000 local children, adults and seniors in need.

Sign up to lead a drive.

Become a Drive Leader to support the Holiday Wish Drive. Anyone who is part of a group—a business, school, family, social club or friends—and wants to help children-in-need in the community is qualified to lead a Drive.

As a Drive Leader, you will…

  • Facilitate donations and participation within your group by posting wish cards in a well-traveled area or distributing them to friends and colleagues.
  • Set up a Virtual Giving Tree (VGT) to allow for online donations.
  • Deliver the donated items collected to Family Giving Tree's donation drop off point at Palo Alto Square on December 11th.
  • Receive priority when signing up for Family Giving Tree's in-demand warehouse volunteer shifts.
  • Have a direct impact in your own community

If you're leading a drive for a company in Stanford Research Park (see map), please attend our Holiday Wish Drive Kick-Off Luncheon on November 7, 2019.

  • A Family Giving Tree representative will provide a quick overview of the Holiday Wishes program.
  • Experienced Holiday Wishes coordinators will share their tips for success.
  • Marketing materials and Holiday Wishes gift tags will be distributed. Select “pick up” as your option to receive holiday wish cards when you register as a drive leader and your cards will be available for you at the luncheon.

Please RSVP by November 5th.

Please contact Stanford Research Park’s Family Giving Tree coordinator, I Lin Chen, at to let us know how we can support your effort to fulfill holiday wishes!
