Our 2019 Giving Tree program will begin in November!

You can make a difference in the life of someone served by Little Friends this holiday season by participating in the agency’s annual Giving Tree program. Beginning in mid-November, Giving Trees will be located in businesses throughout the western suburbs.  Simply take a tag that lists a gift request from a person we support. Purchase and wrap the requested gift, and return the gift, with tag attached, to its original location. We will then distribute all donated gifts in time for the holidays.

Virtual Giving Tree

This year we have added something new to our Giving Tree Program - a Virtual Giving Tree on Amazon.com.! If you are unable to get to one of our area locations listed above to pick up a tag from a tree, you can still participate. Go to your Amazon account and search for our wish list by Little Friends Inc. Shop as you normally would, and any gift you select from our wish list will be sent to our offices to be wrapped and delivered. (And if you use Amazon smile and choose Little Friends as your charity, 0.5% of your purchases will be donated to LF.  You shop, Amazon gives!) Just another way to brighten the holidays for a person we serve!
