Northwood’s Giving Tree

The Giving Tree Program unites community, staff and families to bring gifts to Northwood residents – making sure they feel loved and remembered during the Holidays. Learn how to take part in the Giving Tree program.

How Does it Work?

There are 2 ways to take part in the Giving Tree program:

  1. Choose a tag from the Giving Tree at each Northwood location. You can then purchase the item and drop off your Gift, or
  2. Make a monetary donation online or at any of our locations.

We’re here to help, so contact us if you need to arrange a pick up. Please note: Gift bags and tissue are welcome, but please do not wrap the gifts.

Thank you for embracing our Community this holiday season! Your generosity empowers Northwood residents to smile more and Live More, knowing they have not been forgotten.
