Jennifer Garner will be honored at the 2016 Baby2Baby Gala.

The actress – who is the mother of three children: Violet, 10, Seraphina, 7, and Samuel, 4 – will be presented with the Baby2Baby “Giving Tree Award” for her support of the Los Angeles-based nonprofit and ongoing dedication to children in need.

Baby2Baby co-presidents Kelly Sawyer Patricof and Norah Weinstein said that when it came time to choose this year’s recipient, they couldn’t think of anyone more worthy of the award than Garner.

“We are so proud to honor Jennifer for her commitment to supporting low-income children” Patricof and Weinstein said in a statement. “She is quite possibly the biggest advocate for these issues we have ever come across.”

“She has worked tirelessly for seven years to help combat children’s poverty through education and leadership,” they continued. “Just this past year, she helped us secure over 2 million diapers to distribute to the families in our program across the country. We are beyond grateful for her immeasurable contributions to children all over the world and to the children of Baby2Baby.”
