Become a Drive Leader to support our Back-to-School and Holiday Wish Drives. A Drive Leader is Family Giving Tree’s main contact and the key to each Drive’s success. 

Who can be a Drive Leader?  

Anyone who is part of a group—a business, school, family, social club or friends—and wants to help children-in-need in the community can lead a Holiday Wish Drive or Back-to-School Drive. We work with Drive Leaders every step of the way and provide all the tools needed to make each Drive a success.

Role of a Drive Leader

As a Drive Leader, you will…

  • Register your group for each Drive
  • Facilitate donations and participation within your group by posting backpack tags and wish cards in a well-traveled area or distributing them to friends and colleagues.
  • Collect and deliver the donated backpacks or gifts to Family Giving Tree’s warehouse.
  • Receive priority when signing up for Family Giving Tree's in-demand warehouse volunteer shifts.
  • Have a direct impact in your own community.

2021 Drive Leader registration opens in the spring for the Back-to-School Drive and in the early fall for the Holiday Wish Drive.
