Take Part in 15th-Annual Giving Tree

Published: November 8, 2023

Help bring holiday cheer to children in the Treasure Valley by participating in College of Western Idaho’s (CWI) 15th-annual Giving Tree. This year, the College’s Psychology Club, Psi Beta, Student Veterans of America, Student Nurses Association, Social Work Club, and campus Security are partnering with CASA of Southwest Idaho, an independent non-profit organization representing the best interests of children in foster care.

The Giving Tree will collect donated toys and presents to gift to children in foster care around the Treasure Valley for the holidays.

“We are all so grateful to have the opportunity to help bring joy to children in foster care this holiday season,” said Psychology Club Co-Chair, Jessica Tisch.

Last year, the event was able to collect more than 500 toys and presents for foster children. Psychology Club is hoping to collect at least 500 donations again this year so every child in CASA of Southwest Idaho will receive a gift this holiday season.

New, unwrapped gifts will be collected now through Friday, Dec. 8. Each Giving Tree has tags that share gift ideas for a child in CASA of Southwest Idaho.

Trees are located near the security desks at the following campus locations:
