Giving Tree

Catholic Charities Giving Tree

As a holiday tradition, the Giving Tree provides gifts to those who would not normally receive them, during the holidays and throughout the year. Each ornament on the Giving Tree represents a gift wish for a homeless or low-income member of our community – children, teens and adults.

Come to Macy’s Court at the Mall of America and participate in the Giving Tree program. Your generous support will make the holidays a little brighter for those in need.

10:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m.
Monday, December 23, 2019
