The Giving Tree is our annual tradition of providing Christmas gifts for families in need throughout San Diego. Since 2008, Flood Church has collected thousands of Christmas gifts that benefit individuals in need, identified by our partnerships with local organizations (see below). Thank you for joining us in providing Christmas gifts for those in need!
How it works:
PICK UP a Christmas ornament from the Giving Tree at church beginning November 19th, 2023 OR choose items from the list below.
PURCHASE the items on the tag (or below) and BRING the gifts back (with their tag) to Flood by Sunday, December 10th (Gifts for Flood Community Benevolence can be brought to Flood through Christmas Eve).
NOTE: You may also bring any Giving Tree gift to the Holly Jolly Christmas Party on Dec 9th!
If you are unable to join us in person, feel free to donate to our partners directly.

ANTI HUMAN TRAFFICKING TEAM
Partnering with Generate Hope*

Thank You!
FLOOD COMMUNITY BENEVOLENCE
For those within Flood Church or those in the surrounding community in need.
Target, Amazon, and DoorDash Gift Cards (amount of your choice). It's helpful for our church to have Gift Cards that are not specifically Holiday Themed, since we distribute these throughout the entire year as needs arise.
