Annual Holiday Wish Tree Project

_MG_2621Every year, Regional Center of Orange County partners with the community to make the holiday season a special time of year for children and adults with developmental disabilities.

With the generous support of businesses, organizations and individuals RCOC is able to provide gifts and meet needs for children and adults who otherwise would go without during the holidays.

How it works

  • Please take a moment to review a wish card on our Virtual Wish Tree and see if there is a child or adult with a developmental disability that you can help.  Most children have families that do not have the means to purchase gifts while the adults sometimes are alone and do not have family or relatives.
  • Select a child or adult that you would like to support.
  • Notify RCOC of your intent to purchase the gift(s).  Please contact Jennifer Casteel at or (714) 796-5330.
  • Deliver wrapped gifts to RCOC’s Main Office at 1525 North Tustin Avenue, Santa Ana by no later than Monday, December 11 at 5:00pm.  

If you wish to make a monetary donation in lieu of purchasing gifts, please make gifts payable to “Brian’s Fund,” a non-profit entity that provides for the special and emergency needs of people with developmental disabilities.

All gifts that support Wish Tree Project/Brian’s Fund are fully tax-deductible.
