Holiday Giving is a Brea Tradition

Wish Trees 

 Individuals can pull a tag off any Wish Tree (located at The Community Center, Civic Center and Resource Center beginning November 15 and return directly to the Resource Center. Gift cards are then used throughout the year to provide relief to Brea families facing any kind of financial hardship. 

Your cash donations to the Brea Resource Center (Federal Tax ID number: 95-6000681) will support Brea families this holiday season and all year long.


In partnership with Brea Community Emergency Council (BCEC) and Active Christians Today, the Resource Center is, once again, participating in the annual Holiday Assistance Program. This program allows local, low-income families to receive the fixings for a traditional holiday dinner. Rather than collecting food, BCEC will now be purchasing $50 gift cards to distribute on a Saturday in December.  

Your cash donations to BCEC (a nonprofit 501c3 charity, Federal tax id: 95-6113628) will continue to help BREA families and seniors this holiday season. 

Please mail your checks to:           BCEC

Offer Your Services

If your business offers services (auto repair, hair cut, legal counsel, etc.) that meet a community need, we would be grateful to partner with you.

Donations of cash or general gift cards (grocery cards, gas cards, home repair cards, pet care cards, etc.) provide vital support to families and individuals in need.

Do you know a Brea family in need? Encourage them to set up a one-on-one appointment with BRC case management staff.

All donations go directly to Brea families who find themselves in need. Brea residency and family income are verified to ensure your tax-deductible donation is used wisely.
