Recycle Your Christmas Tree: Donate

It’s never too early to start planning for Christmas, especially when a free Christmas tree offer comes your way. Last year several families in need of Christmas help were able to be matched on with other familes who wanted to recycle their Christmas tree by donating it. I can’t think of a better way to recycle Christmas trees…can you?

Free Christmas Tree Offer

I currently have a reader who wants to recycle her 7 1/2 ft Christmas tree and lights by donating it to a single mom in the far western suburbs of Chicago. Here’s what she wrote to me a few days ago:

I just came across this website and hope that this service is still available. I have a 7 1/2′ artificial tree with lights. It is an older tree and may not have many more Christmas’ left in it but it is a big beautiful tree. I’ve enjoyed many years with this tree. It was a gift to me from someone who knew that as a single mom, I would never be able to afford a tree any other way. I would love to see it go to another single mom in need. I also have many spare sets of lights that just sit in a box each year.

    I live in Somerset County, N.J. and I noticed that there was a family that posted on this website that they live in Middlesex, N.J. and have a 7 1/2 ft artificial christmas tree they want to give to a family in need. I live about 10 minutes from Middlesex, N.J. and I can really use a gift like that right now. Can you please try to contact me with this family/person so that we may try to get in touch with them to get this tree for my family? Please?

    I am a single mom and my family is in need of many things. My girls need beds, dressers, shoes, clothes, coats. Our family is in desperate need of a vechile. I don’t have a dependable vechile to get my family around. Its always breaking down and I don’t have money to fix it. I would cost more than the vechile cost. My family really needs some help. We live in waukegan il.

I am a single mother; however, I live in Oklahoma and i looking for things for christmas. My son and i had to miss out on his first christmas last year but i really want to make it up to him for his second one. Please feel free to email me back.

    Thank you Amber C.
