Virtual Holiday Giving Tree
The History of the Giving Tree
2020 Virtual Tree
Giving Tree Footage over the years!
Each Year, the D4D Foundation Partner’s with a local community in the effort to give back to children who are in the hospital during the holidays. Partnering with Darden/Olive Garden in the past - there would be a beautifully decorated tree in the lobby of the restaurant where guests and employees would choose an “ornament” off the tree with a gift written on it to return by a certain date for a holiday in person drop off and caroling. The coronavirus impact has made this process far different, but keeping the spirit and tradition alive was a no brainer. That is when the “Virtual Giving Tree” was born.
With the help of Crystals for COVID (formed by Mary Cumella and Veronica Kole), and American Dream, the giving tree continues in virtual form! Through Bingo events and sponsored gifts, we are proud to continue our efforts in keeping the giving spirit alive this holiday season. To sponsor a gift, if you’d prefer to directly instead of participating in Virtual Bingo, we have Venmo (@dfd-foundation) and can even include your name in the gift tag! We also have a bingo (flyer coming soon) in which you can even win prizes and 100% of the proceeds will be used to fulfill the “Holiday Wish List”!
