Future Events This Year (TBD due to Covid-19)
December 25th 2020 @St. Francis Hospital & Various Nursing Homes
The Giving Tree Family was extremely busy this holiday season! The Giving Tree Family participated in their annual Holiday Performances at multiple hospitals across long Island! These performances included solo violinists, an orchestra, dance groups, singing, and a group chorus. Even the parents participate with their own chorus! TGTF also partnered with the Nassau Police Conference this year for an AHRC Holiday visit and created some holiday cards to boost the spirits of hospital patients on Long Island who could not celebrate with others.
For the past few years, TGTF has been honored to be invited back to AHRC's annual volunteer recognition dinner on Thursday night, April 27th. What started as just one event blossomed into a beautiful partnership. The Giving Tree Family was given the great opportunity of coming back, of being able to help out with Camp Loyaltown. Without AHRC, our group wouldn't have been able to grow as much as we have now.
And a special thanks to...
Events Done - 2020
Nov 17th, 2020 @Multiple Locations
The Giving Tree Family successfully raised over 1000 lbs of food and $600 in donations at this year's Thanksgiving food drive. We worked from three locations on Long Island (Fairway Douglaston, Fairway Westbury, Super FL Mart). Once again, we worked with Island Harvest in order to donate our canned food and money to families across Long Island that are in need of support. We are always happy to make a contribution to our amazing community. Special thanks to the supermarkets for allowing us to set up at their entrances and to the huge amount of generous people who decided to give back!
June 12th 2020 @ Douglaston Community Church
Every year, The Giving Tree Family has a big party at the Douglaston Community Church to celebrate our graduating seniors. This year, Giving Tree was finally able to host an in person graduation party, as the class of 2020's was on zoom. There was tons of food, water balloon fights, relay races, and more lawn games during the festivities. This year also marked the return of pie a member!
