WAYS TO DONATE
At 4 SEASON GIVING TREE, needy families are vetted through the schools, counselors, and PTA staff who work within the community. Your donations will support families in need through various essentials—food, clothing, toys, school supplies, and other items they may need to live their best lives.
* If you prefer to be personally matched with a family for continuous donations throughout the year, your donations will not be tax-deductible, as you will receive the family's wish list and will have an opportunity to purchase and deliver the items directly to the families in need.
One of the goals for this program is to directly match every family for whom we have previously provided assistance with a giving family to meet the ongoing needs of these families. The focus is on upcycling gently used clothing and toys. If you would like to be matched to a family or would like to donate items your own family has outgrown, please complete the following form to be linked directly to a family on the front stoop of their home.
Because we are an all-volunteer program, we are unable to move and store furniture being donated. At times, we partner with programs for special requests. Other times, many donating families choose to hire David Elhawa, a local mover and 4 SEASON GIVING TREE volunteer, who picks up the furniture (and other large items) for a fee in order to cover his costs. David then redirects those pieces to families in our program with specific furniture needs. As a result of David’s amazing efforts, we have been able to fully furnish most of the families in need. (Note: David's moving company works independently from 4 SEASON GIVING TREE. If you are interested in discussing details with David, please text him at (240) 543-7516. David will provide more details on pricing, answer any questions and schedule pickup of your furniture. Click here to read more about our organization's history with David and how he works.
