The Giving Tree helps families who are unable to meet agency program registration deadlines and who have adult age children who do not qualify for any program assistance.

These families are referred to "The Giving Tree" for last minute help through United Way's 211 Call Center.  Last year 79 families received last minute assistance through this volunteer effort.
