The Giving Tree is different than a typical angel tree. The goal of the Giving Tree is aligned with our mission to empower CIS students in Denton, Wise and Cooke Counties and address barriers to their success to keep students in school and on track for graduation. For a student to be successful, they need to come to school prepared , nourished, and focused on learning. Items such as new clothing and shoes boost confidence, winter coats keep students warm on their way to school, and family meal boxes reduce food insecurity, as well as providing kid friendly snacks that supply accessible food when parents are working.


If you are unable to find a specific items, feel free to substitute a similar item. Please don't overfill your bag. The bag needs to be easily "liftable" for a family. We need items by Sunday, December 11th. If you have any questions please email
