Each year select families who participate in our Capable Kids and Family, Parents Learning Together, and Belle Children Services programs receive holiday gifts as part of the annual St. Louis Arc Giving Tree. In the past the Arc has partnered with businesses and individuals in the St. Louis community who buy gifts from a child’s wish list. Without the support of these partnerships, many children and families in our programs would not be able to have holiday presents.
As a service agency, we are taking the pandemic extremely seriously. As a result, we do not want to encouraging individuals to visit stores and purchase gifts on our behalf. To ensure our families are able to have a happy holiday, while still keeping others safe, we are changing the format of the Giving Tree.
For individuals who are able to participate this year in the Giving Tree, we will accept monetary donations. Giving Tree donations will allow us to order the gifts needed and guarantee a holiday delivery. We truly appreciate the generosity of everyone who participates in the Giving Tree.
