The Giving Tree

The Giving Tree was the first TOGETHERHOOD community service project

The Giving Tree project had volunteers from the community that partnered with four local merchants to benefit Community Access Unlimited – Runaway & Homeless Youth Shelter.

At-risk youth often come to Community Access Unlimited having lived in many places but rarely a real home.  The vision of Community Access Unlimited, Runaway & Homeless Youth Shelter is to halt the cycle of homelessness by offering engaging programs that enable youth to move forward to a safer, healthier, and a more productive way of living within the community.

The Giving Trees were placed at 4 local merchants by volunteers as part of the first TOGETHERHOOD project. Community members delivered 160 gifts to place under The Giving Trees and 72 runaway & homeless young adults had a very special holiday!
