Georgia United Foundation Helps Children in Need Have a Brighter Holiday Season
DULUTH, GA — Georgia United Foundation is excited to announce the return of their Wish Tree program. Now in its 31st year, Wish Tree provides gifts to children in need in Georgia through generous donations made by members and community partners.
Make the holidays brighter for children now through December 8, 2021, by donating requested toys or articles of clothing from the online shopping list found at gucufoundation.org/wishtree or by selecting an ornament at any of the Georgia United Credit Union’s branch locations. Purchased gifts from the online shopping list will ship directly to the branch and the local Division of Family and Children Services (DFCS) or another local charitable organization will pick up and deliver gifts to children in time for the holidays. If an ornament is chosen at a selected branch, new, unwrapped items should be returned to the branch by December 8. Monetary donations to the Wish Tree Fund can also be made at branch locations or by visiting gucufoundation.org/donate. All funds collected will be used to purchase items from the shopping list in that area.
Since the program’s inception, over 31,000 gifts have been donated to children in need, thanks to the generosity of the community. The foundation’s 2021 goal is to grant 1,120 wishes, reaching approximately 375 children in the local communities.
To help spread holiday cheer and make a charitable donation, visit gucufoundation.org/wishtree. Donations are welcome now through Wednesday, December 8.
