RICHMOND, Va. — On Saturday, the JP Jumpers Foundation, which helps advocate for Central Virginia's special needs community, will kick off their annual Giving Tree fundraiser at C & G Luxury Candles in Stony Point.

The Giving Tree event helps ensure more than 300 Virginia children and adults with special needs are able to have Christmas presents under their tree.

This year, JP Jumpers is asking for gift cards so loved ones can purchase the actual items for their family member.

If you can't make it out to the launch party in person, they will be livestreaming it on theJP Jumpers YouTube channel here.

The foundation will hand out the gift cards during a wrap party.
