Jeremy’s Giving Tree @ Fanwood-Scotch Plains YMCA
Nov 23 – Dec 10 all-day

Help us brighten the holidays for our neighbors in need!

Each ornament on Jeremy’s Giving Tree has a gift from a child’s wish list. Please take an ornament and fulfill the wish. Here’s how: 

1. Take an ornament
2. Shop for the gift
3. Bring the unwrapped gift, along with the ornament, back to the Fanwood-Scotch Plains Y by Friday, Dec. 10.


4. Our toy drive also will accept donations of new, unwrapped gifts for area children, ages newborn to 18 years old (many children are in need, but have not specified their wishes and would be grateful for a gift this holiday season.)

Jeremy’s Giving Tree is held in memory of a little boy who brightened lives as a part of our Y family. We suffered the loss of a preschool student tragically in 2012, the week before Christmas. His name was Jeremy and he loved coming to the Y. This holiday season, the Y is continuing the tradition started in Jeremy’s memory. Jeremy’s Giving Tree affords our Y family the opportunity to provide local families in need of some wished for gifts.

A bin is located in our YMCA lobby, 1340 Martine Avenue in Scotch Plains. Thank you for helping your neighbors in need this holiday season!
