Mission Statement

Treesgiving was created with the purpose of sprucing up the holidays for children and families in the local and surrounding communities. We would like the opportunity to assist those who are in unexpected situations and need some holiday cheer. Whether in the hospital, shelter, or struggling to keep it going during the holiday, Treesgiving is here to let you know, WE CARE. Let us spruce up a tree for you, your child(ren), family, neighbor, or entire community. Treesgiving has a vision of being able to supply all the local Children's Hospital rooms with a tree for the holiday year 2022 and beyond.

Our Story

Treesgiving was created for a 7 year-old who wanted to provide all children with a mini tree for the holiday like he had.


"My son had a little mini blue Christmas tree on his dresser in his room. It only had lights on it and he wanted ornaments. My husband took him to the store and they picked some out.  After we finished decorating, we discussed being thankful.  We spoke how he was fortunate to have his own mini tree because many children do not.  This made my son sad.  He asked if there was was a way to provide other/all kids with trees.  In the moment I told him it was a very nice genuine thought but no.  The next day, I thought, I can make that happen for him, and Treesgiving was formed."
