Virtual Giving Tree

The Garber Virtual Giving Tree provides gifts for local school children from Bangert, Ben D. Quinn and  J T Barber Elementary Schools.   We work thru the guidance counselors at each school to select children in need of gifts this Christmas. 

Each child selected has two tags placed on the “virtual tree” — one for clothing and one for a desired toy or gift.  

Often we include siblings that are younger or older than elementary school, so each child in the family receives gifts.

Through your generosity, these gifts bring needed items & joy to those who receive them!


If you would like to give a gift of love from our Giving Tree, you will “choose a tag” online, go shop or order the item(s), put your name on the gift and drop it by the church in the designated outside carts no later than December 11 at noon. 


By taking a tag from our Virtual Giving Tree, you are sharing God’s love to children in need in our local schools.

Alternative Giving Cards

A long standing Advent/Christmas tradition at Garber Church is Alternative Giving Cards. 

These cards, when purchased by you and given to a friend or loved one, help support two of our local mission partners: Religious Community Services and Backpack Blessings. Once you order your cards, they will be delivered to your door or mailed to you! Then, you can address them and send them to your loved ones, teachers, neighbors, or others. 

These cards both honor the person to whom you send them, as well as financially help the two named missions. It’s a win-win!


Alternative Giving Cards are available for online purchase through December 11.
