Welcome to the season of giving!

During this time of the year, we’re reminded of the blessings we have been given, and we are motivated to help those who need assistance. That’s why Teepe Giving Tree was built. We’re a non-profit organization whose goal is to bring family, friends, business associates and the community together to help those in need and to give back. We do this by securing sponsorships for a group of Giving Trees that will be distributed to families of St. Vincent de Paul in the Cincinnati area. Here’s how it works:

  • You sponsor a tree or a gift card for the tree
  • We use your sponsorship dollars to purchase a simple tree and gift cards for the families
  • Our volunteers assemble the trees and attach gift cards for the families
  • We will deliver the trees to families identified by St. Vincent de Paul

We believe by doing this we will make a real impact in our great City of Cincinnati. We will be directly supporting others during this most joyful of seasons. The Teepe Giving Tree is our chance to be a servant to others.

The holidays can be challenging for families, and the Giving Tree is designed to provide them with the means to purchase holiday meals and gifts to enjoy and celebrate the season.

Over the last several years, thanks to the generous hearts of many in our community, the Teepe Family Foundation’s annual Giving Tree has put the “MERRY” back into the Christmas season for area families in need.

Each tree will be adorned with $400 worth of gift cards from Kroger, Walmart, Bob Evans, Cincinnati Zoo, and other local family restaurants and retailers and then delivered to children and families identified by St. Vincent DePaul.

Celebrate the season!

Nothing feels better than giving!

From our family to yours.
