Holiday Giving Tree

This year, as in previous years, UUCA wishes to honor the dignity and worth of immigrants during the holiday season through a Holiday Giving Tree. Due to COVID-19, this year will look somewhat different than previous years. Right now, we are supporting 3 families together as a congregation BUT if the wishlists are filled quickly, we will be able to support even more families!

How to Participate this Year:

  • Choose the presents you would like to buy from the Amazon wishlists.
  • If you plan to buy via amazon, add the items to your cart and ship them directly to:

Beck Schillizzi
220 Renaissance PKWY NE Apt 1112
Atlanta, GA 30308
If a phone number is needed: (404) 634-5134 ext 229

  • If you do not wish to buy from Amazon, click “Buying this gift elsewhere?” so that the gift will not be bought twice. Please ship the gift directly to the address above.
  • You do not need to buy additional gift wrap for the presents.
  • If a present is still listed on the list, then it has not been bought!  All presents that are bought will disappear from the list.

IRC Families

Our first two family are refugees who are currently working with the International Rescue Committee (IRC). Each wishlist is made in consultation with the family or individual recently resettled in the Atlanta metro area. If an item on the list goes out of stock, please feel free to choose a similar item on Amazon.

 

The first family is a family of two originally from Burma.

El Refugio Family

Our third family is the Martinez family. Ms. Martinez has four boys (1, 4, 7, . Her husband was at Stewart Detention Center and is either awaiting deportation or has already been deported. She is part of a special program at El Refugio that provides direct assistance for rent, utilities, and other necessities through funding from the Latino Community Fund. All 14 families in this program live in Georgia, have been impacted by immigrant detention, and are of very limited financial means.
