El Paso Community Foundation Launches 35th Annual Spirit of Giving Campaign!

The El Paso Community Foundation’s 35th annual Spirit of Giving campaign kicks-off with a virtual tree sponsored by community partners and physical trees going up in two local malls in the coming weeks.

Get into the holiday spirit by donating a gift to children, older adults and people with specials needs – people who might otherwise go without during the holidays. This year promises to be one of the best as 2023 marks the 35th year for the campaign with more than 67,000 gifts donated in that time.

How can you make someone’s holiday special?

Visit our virtual tree at and choose one or more tags to really make a difference!

Once you click on our virtual tree, there are two ways you can give:

• Click a tag and pay for the item. The Community Foundation will ensure it is delivered.

• Click the tag, purchase the gift yourself, place it in a bag (please do not wrap it), print out and attach your tag, and deliver it to the El Paso Community Foundation Spirit of Giving Space during our drop-off hours (see below) on the 2nd floor at The Shoppes at Solana (formerly Sunland Park Mall).

If you prefer, you can pick a tag from our Spirit of Giving Trees at Cielo Vista Mall and The Shoppes at Solana when they are up, by Thanksgiving weekend.

We’ll host our Spirit of Giving Drop-off for gifts at the following dates, times, and location:

11 a.m. to 8 p.m.
