About the Event

Gift of Giving is the Cedar Valley Jaycee’s largest youth-based event. Approximately 100 children across the Cedar Valley participate each year in this event. It is designed to show them the true “gift of giving” by allowing them to purchase $40.00 worth of holiday presents for their family at Blain’s Farm and Fleet. There is no cost for the participating children or their families. 

Each participating child will be paired with a community volunteer to assist them with their shopping. Together, they will ride buses to Blain’s Farm & Fleet to purchase their gifts. All participants will be transported back to the UAW for breakfast, gift wrapping, and pick-up after they finish shopping.
