Giving Tree Wrapping

Our community is helping to make the holidays special for 16 kids and adults enrolled in the LA DPSS Adopt-a-Family program. 

Over the next couple months, we'll be accepting items at Assemblies, by mail and at other events, and that means there'll be be plenty of gift sorting, list-double checking, stocking stuffing, ribbon curling and wrapping to be done. Bring a new, unwrapped gift or a gift card and come join the fun!

Often our sponsored families are just getting into permanent housing and need a lot of basic items like clothing, toiletries and groceries, in addition to school supplies and holiday gifts for children. 

The names, ages and requested items for our adopted families are compiled on this list:

Wishlist document - Pick a gift and sign up!  You're welcome to shop for or make anything you like and add it to the doc. (Note: Each family is on a separate tab)

For your convenience, we've made an Amazon Wishlist, so you can shop from home if you choose. (If you do use Amazon, please also sign up in the above document)

Gift cards are always in high demand, and we can use wrapping paper, gift tags, tape, gift bags and boxes too! We'll set up delivery with the families directly, hopefully all on the same day just a few days before Xmas. If you'd like to participate in delivery, please add your name to the Delivery tab of the Wishlist document.

You don't need to bring anything to participate, and you don't need to show up to send a gift. There are lots of ways to help!

Thank you for all the ways you help. This project is one of our favorites and makes a huge impact on both recipients and volunteers.


Wishing you a beautiful holiday season,

The SALA Team

    Thank you for your interest in tonight’s gift wrapping party. (Which, tonight, will also be a bicycle assembling party!)

    We are still actively accepting items. Check out our Wishlist Document, our Amazon suggested gifts or bring along a gift card, a surprise gift or a few dollars toward a motel room or delivered hot meal. Our new adopted family (assigned today!)is asking for work clothes and tools for dad and gifts for 12 and 4-year old daughters. Thank you!
