Holiday Helper Tree

You’re invited to be a part of Georgia Southern’s 24th annual Holiday Helper Tree!

More than 800 individuals and 17 community organizations are represented this year. This is a great opportunity to Serve912 this holiday season!

You can get involved by…

  • Giving a Gift:  Pull a tag from the tree!  Each tag has a gift wish from a member of our local community. There are both individuals and families from numerous local organizations.  You can pull as many tags as you would like, or your organization can choose to adopt one of the families on the tree. 
  • Volunteering at the Tree: Volunteers are needed to check out the tags being pulled from the Holiday Helper Tree.  The office is looking for volunteers to work this table from 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m., when the tree is open. Volunteers can sign up here!
  • Donating funds for unclaimed tags: Another way to participate is to donate directly to one of our partner agencies to help with any tags that are not claimed. Email to be connected with one of our partner agencies.
