Gift Card Giving Tree Drive to
Support Expectant and Single Mothers and their Babies
Looking for a way to give this Christmas season, that won’t cost you a dime and won’t take up hours of your time? Put up a Bethesda House gift card giving tree at your establishment! Bethesda House is a maternity home on the South Shore that provides expectant mothers and mothers of infants a safe place to live and thrive in. We welcome moms from all over the country.
ABOUT BETHESDA HOUSE
Our home has 8 rooms, each equipped with a bed and crib for a mother and her child. We link moms with an educational plan so when they leave, they have the necessary skills and knowledge to be self-sufficient. We help moms work out all the details in order to make this possible, from accessing benefits, to childcare and transportation, to financial aid. We also teach parenting and life skills, and best of all, we provide the love and support these new moms need.
GIVING BACK THIS CHRISTMAS SEASON
Tis the season of giving! We are 100% volunteer-run and rely on donations for everything from diapers to maternity clothes to toilet paper. Gift cards to places like Amazon and Walmart allow us to purchase the various things we need throughout the year to support our moms and babies.
Each year we put up “giving trees” in area establishments with ornaments featuring a baby and instructions on how to donate an Amazon or Walmart gift card. Patrons can take an ornament and follow the instructions on how to donate gift cards. Amazon cards can be bought online and sent directly to Bethesda House, while Walmart cards can be purchased at Walmart and brought back to your establishment.
All we need you to do is keep the cards safe and we will pick them up at the end of the season!
We bring the tree kit and set it up for you — just tell us where to put it. We will start setting up trees on November 21st, and you can leave them up through New Year’s Day. We will be thanking each business on social media and in our newsletter and will be sure to tag/link to your Facebook business page. This is also a great option for businesses with employees looking for a Christmas project. Employees can each take an ornament and bring the gift cards into work. Tis the season of giving!
