MIT Giving Tree for 2014 will likely begin mid-November.

Giving Tree

The MIT Giving Tree allows students, alumni, faculty, staff and friends to provide gifts to needy children in the Cambridge and Boston area each holiday season. The MIT Public Service Center works with 11 local agencies to collect gift requests from hundreds of children.

Parents: Please note that the Giving Tree program is unfortunately unable to provide gifts to individual families directly. Instead, we work with 11 local social service organizations to provide gifts to the children they work with. Please contact those agencies for more information about whether you may participate in their giving programs.
