The Gift of Giving

Aventura Mall has always been centered around a mission to “do good.” Giving back to our Miami-Dade and South Florida community is at the core of our presence, and the holiday season is no exception. Nothing fills our hearts more than seeing lives improved by the kindness of helping hands.

This holiday season, there are several ways visitors can contribute to South Floridians in need simply by visiting Aventura Mall. We invite you to join us in our holiday community efforts, as there’s no greater gift than that of giving back:

Voices for Children - Aventura Mall

Voices For Children Gift Wrap Station

Dress up your holiday gifts with a curated selection of simple and whimsical designs, bows, accessories and cards at our Gift Wrap Station, located on the Lower Level next to Concierge. Gift wrapping services are available starting at $5 per gift and all proceeds benefit Voices for Children Foundation, Inc., supporting the organization’s mission to continue giving the gift of transformation by providing every child who enters the child-welfare system with a Guardian ad Litem who will be their voice in court.

Wish Book

Miami Herald Wish Book

Help fulfill holiday wishes for South Florida residents in need. By conveniently scanning the QR codes on our digital screens, you can donate to individuals and families featured in Miami Herald’s 2022 Holiday Wish Book, an annual giving initiative that has been transforming lives for decades.

Salvation Army Angel Tree

Salvation Army Angel Tree

Now through early December, help families in need experience the magic of the holiday season by selecting an Angel (or Angels) from the Salvation Army’s Angel Tree and shopping for their desired toy or clothing. Gifts can be dropped off at Concierge on the Lower Level near Center Court. The Salvation Army will provide gifts to the families to put under their own Christmas tree.

Pawchitecture - Aventura Mall

PAWchitecture

Aventura Mall is partnering with The Miami Center for Architecture & Design (MCAD) and Humane Society of Greater Miami to host the inaugural “PAWchitecture” design and build competition, featuring innovative pet homes and play stations created by top design and architecture firms. The spectacular designs are on display through Dec. 11 throughout Aventura Mall for visitors to view and bid on first-hand. Each design will be auctioned both at the shopping center and online, with proceeds directly benefiting Humane Society of Greater Miami – which cares for hundreds of vulnerable animals – and MCAD.

Musicians on Call

Musicians on Call

As part of Aventura Mall’s focus on community and the arts, we’ve once again partnered with Musicians on Call (MOC) to provide the gift of live holiday musical performances to patients, families and caregivers at South Florida hospitals. Musicians On Call is the nation’s leading provider of live music in hospitals, serving individuals in facilities ranging from children’s hospitals and adult facilities to VA hospitals and hospices. MOC has brought live and recorded music to patients’ bedsides for over 20 years and has completed one million performances as of March 2022. Learn more and get involved by visiting MusiciansonCall.org.
