Holiday Gift Project

Holiday Gift Project

Each year, generous community members support our Holiday Gift Project (formerly called Project Angel Tree), which ensures that each member of our Boys & Girls Clubs of SWVA family receives a toy to unwrap during the holiday season. 

Thanks to the early support from individual donors and partner groups, our Club members are all taken care of for the 2023 holiday season!

Two ways to financially support this initiative

Make a Financial Contribution: When the event kicks off (late summer) donors can make a financial contribution toward this special initiative. The recommended donation to cover a gift for one child is $35. Our team of elves purchase and wrap a special requested gift for each child.

Shop our Amazon Wish Lists: When wish lists are live on Amazon for the year, donors can shop for children directly on our Amazon lists for Club site of their choice. Gifts are sent to our office, wrapped, and delivered to Club members during the holiday season.

**If you are a corporate group interested in partnering financially on our Holiday Gift Project, please contact Emily Pinkerton at

Give of your time: If you are interested in volunteering your time to help wrap presents, please contact Emily Pinkerton at for more information.

We could not do this without the support of our joy-makers who bring big smiles to the faces of our Club kids through this effort. Your partnership ensures that the holidays are a magical time of year for young people in our community who need us most.
