Christmas Help: Donate or Receive a Christmas Tree

Connecting Families: Artificial Christmas Tree Donations

Many people just throw out their artificial Christmas trees to be picked up at the curb as trash. Donating artificial Christmas trees to low income families in need, or charitable organizations who service families in need, would be a wonderful way to help create a merry Christmas. Recycling artificial Christmas trees will also be beneficial for the environment by reducing the amount of trees sent to the landfill.

If you have an artificial Christmas tree (and Christmas lights) to donate (as instructed below), please leave a comment. I’ll be in touch to try to connect you with a family in need of a Christmas tree donation.

Families in Need of an Artificial Christmas Tree Donation

If you are a family in need of an artificial Christmas tree this year because you cannot afford a Christmas Tree, please leave a comment below. If I receive an offer of a Christmas tree donation in your area, I will attempt to connect you with the donor.

If you are a charitable organization who would like to receive artificial Christmas tree and Christmas lights donations to distribute to local families in need of assistance, please leave a comment below.

Include in the comment box below:

  • contact name
  • email
  • town/city
  • state
  • family or charitable organization
  • name of organization

Once I receive your comment, I will respond by email for further information. I hope, together, we will be able brighten up Christmas for many children this year.

Disclaimer: I am unable to assist in the delivery of the trees nor contribute any financial assistance. My role is to only connect donors and recipients, if possible. I am not responsible for anything beyond that.

    I have a beautiful 7 1/2ft. artificial Christmas tree. It assembles in 3 pieces. It also has a heavy stand. The tree is “electrified” which means it has a built-in extension cord that is already in the tree. It’s much too beautiful to put out with the trash. I hope someone could use it. I live in Middlesex County, NJ

    Hi Nana,

    I am located in St. Augustine Florida and we have a 7.5 ft narrow Christmas tree and lights that we’d be happy to donate to a family in need. It has been well used for the last 9 years but still has plenty of life left. Please feel free to contact me.

    Hello my name is Christine and I am a mother of 3. 2 girls 4 and 14 and a boy who is 1. Unfortunately I am unable to give them a Christmas tree this year as I am still looking for work and do not have the money to purchase one. If you could point me in the right direction on how I can get one this year I would be eternally grateful. Even if Presents are few and Christmas dinner is minimal having a tree in the home would mean so much to the kids. I Look forward to hearing from you.

    Sincerely,

    Christine Hester

    i am the single parent to three great kids. my daughter is severely disabled and requires full time care and my boys are teens, so last year we donated all of our christmas decorations and tree. On the 1st of november my cousin signed over custody of her 3 yr old daughter to me. I am trying every avenue i can to give her a christmas to remember. She has been through so much in her short three years, and still she can smile.
