It’s time to make the holidays bright for military families in need!


Let's Give Back to Those Who Give So Much to Us!

I want to help make a military child's holiday a little brighter this year!


What it is...

This event is an "Early Christmas" for up to 500 local military children, many who have a parent that is currently serving and will be away during the holidays, a parent that returned home with injuries, and tragically some that have lost a parent.

 Your individual support and donation to Giving Tree Charity's Toys for Our Troops will help provide a joyful day where we can give back to those who have given so much for us. Click here to learn more about this year's event at the Charlotte Motor Speedway.

What We're About

Our Mission

To celebrate the “Holiday Season” with all the children of our Active Duty, National Guard, Reserve, and Veteran families in the Carolinas while bringing some much needed love, support, cheer + joy to our local military children that have a parent presently deployed, injured or tragically killed in action.

Our Vision

To develop partnerships with national and local businesses, military non-profits, veteran organizations and the USO of NC to help grow the reach of our annual events year over year. To have a meaningful impact on the lives of our local military children by providing innovative, fun and exciting Holiday Celebrations at unique, local venues that are inclusive and encourage participation.

Why We Do It...


“We are committed to ensuring that our military children, who have sacrificed along with their parents, have a joyful holiday this season,” -Bruce L. Bleiman, CFO of Giving Tree Realty.
