My Kids’ Favorite Way to Give Back During the Holidays in San Diego (2023)

Bring hope & joy this season for east county children by making their wishes come true. 🪄🎁

You’ll find the Giving Tree at Parkway Plaza Mall in El Cajon, inside the mall next to the WalMart mall entrance. 🎄

🔖 Choose a name tag from the tree (while they last)

🛍️ Shop for their wishes

🧸 Return new & unwrapped gifts by 12/15/23

Volunteers are at the tree every day until Dec. 15. If they’re not around, you can drop them off with the mall guest services or you can take them directly to the Salvation Army El Cajon office: 1025 E Main St., El Cajon, CA

💝 For other ways to donate to local children, look for Toys For Tots donation boxes all over town. You’ll usually find these inside grocery stores, libraries, some police/fire stations, local children’s shops, UPS Stores, churches, and other community centers. Call first before going, or have some new/unwrapped toys in your car for the moment you come across one.

🎅🏻✨ Also check out Operation Santa from the USPS (United States Postal Service). Google it to become one of Santa’s helpers from afar.
