2020 Virtual Annual SJU Giving Tree

This year, Covid-19 restrictions make collecting for the Virtual Giving Tree a totally virtual experience! We ask those who wish to submit a family to do so by creating an online Wish List.

The Wish List should have 3 to 4 items per person, and can be posted online on either Amazon, Target, or Walmart.

Once your wish list is created, submit it to the email below by the deadline: December 10, 2020 IMPORTANT: We are limiting the Giving Tree to the FIRST 5 lists submitted.
