Making Merry Memories For GIAC’s Youth

Help make the holiday season special for children at the Greater Ithaca Activities Center through the GIAC Holiday Giving Tree program.
The Greater Ithaca Activities Center, Inc. would like to invite you to make sure that each child at GIAC receives a present this holiday season. We invite you, our supportive community members, to get into the holiday spirit of giving by participating in the GIAC, Inc. Holiday Giving Tree! GIAC, Inc. is asking community members to donate holiday gifts to children at GIAC.  This year there are 110 children participating in the program who, without your help, may not otherwise receive a gift this holiday season.

GIAC’s youth participants range in age from 4 to 18 years old. Starting November 13th, choose a child’s tag from the Giving Tree either stop by GIAC, 301 West Court Street, between 9 a.m. and 5:30 p.m., Monday – Friday.  To be assigned a child, contact GIAC staff member, Brandon Blas by phone at (607) 272-3622 via email at  

No time to shop, no problem.  Donations are also accepted for gifts to be purchased for children in the program via PayPal. (use the ticket link)

December 15, 2017 at 5:30 p.m. is the deadline to drop off unwrapped gifts to the GIAC office with the Giving Tree tag or assigned gift number. If you have any questions or want more information, please contact Brandon Blas.

Thank you,
