Overview

Home for the Holidays Gift Boxes — Angel Tree Edition

Angel Tree is back this year, but with a twist! Join us in reimagining our annual gifting initiative to provide gifts and and much-needed holiday cheer to children, teens, and families in need. 

Recognizing that many families will be home for the holidays in unprecedented ways, we have created an opportunity to cherish this time at home. Matrix has launched their Home for the Holidays gift boxes fundraiser and we are partnering to provide gift boxes to Angel Tree children and parents this year. Matrix has curated an exclusive Angel Tree box for children, while parents will receive one of Matrix’s Family Fun gift boxes.

This year looks a bit different, but we are excited for you to still have the opportunity to uplift a family in need. Similar to previous years, simply select the size of the family that you are able to support and Matrix will ensure that everyone in the family receives an Angel Tree box!

  • And more!
