Event Description

Eugene Active 20-30 Club, in partnership with Valley River Center, is in need of the community's help to fill the ornaments on the Giving Tree.

The Giving Tree is a Christmas tree where people can pick up ornaments that designate gift donations for thousands of local underprivileged children in our community. Often times these are the only gifts that these children receive during the holiday season. This year, 2,449 ornaments were received from local agencies. The public is encouraged to take the ornaments and fill children's Christmas wishes while doing their shopping at Valley River Center. Items requested include toys, clothing, sporting equipment, electronics, gift cards and more.

Please help us fill these gifts and bring Christmas to children who would otherwise go without.

  • It's not just an NFL problem, it's a societal problem
  • It's just a few players that make everyone look bad
  • It's always been a problem, but the media has brought the spotlight
