Christmas Tree Recycling Network

donate Christmas treesChristmas is a time of giving. It is also presents opportunities for recycling, too. Instead of throwing out your old Christmas tree and decorations, please consider donating it to a local family who can’t afford to buy one this year. Christmas tree decorations and lights can be recycled this way, too! Do something nice for a family in need, Mother Earth, and yourself. Please donate your artificial Christmas tree.

Christmas Tree Recycling Network

I recently wrote an article about donating or receiving artificial Christmas trees. It is my hope that I can start an artificial Christmas Tree recycling network. Since I posted the article, I’ve received requests for receiving a Christmas Tree from mothers who are presently going through rough financial times and are seeking help in giving their children a Christmas this year. They aren’t asking for much here, just a Christmas tree to brighten their holiday. (I’ve offered suggestions in some of  my previous posts on how families may be able to find help for toys and food.)

The families need donors! Please spread the word and ask those who are interested to leave a comment on this or any other post on NanaFinds. All comments come to my email – I will respond to them ASAP!

I’ve posted below the Christmas tree requests that I have received thus far. New requests will be added as they are received. My goal is to connect each family with a donor by December 18. I don’t know if this will work, I can’t promise it will…I can only hope.

There isn’t a better Christmas present to yourself than knowing you’ve brightened a child’s Christmas by giving the family your artificial Christmas tree.

    I have a 9 foot artificial Christmas tree if anyone needs it. It is not in perfect shape but is not in bad shape either. I live in McDonough, GA. Please contact me asap if interested through Nana.

    ***Thank you for your offer! I will contact you if I find someone. If you don’t hear from me within the week, try FreeCycle.org. I’m sure you’ll find someone who could use it.

    Hello,

    I’d like to donate a Christmas tree to a family in need of one. I love sitting in front of the Christmas tree and know how special that can be for a child. I’m in the Los Angeles area.

    Hi, I am a mother of 4 who is unemployed and no longer collection ue and my husbands ue runs out soon, his ue only is enough to cover the rent which is behind. We aren’t able to get a tree this year or a gift for the kids and would be blessed if someone can find someone to donate a tree to help. My kids have had really bad xmas’ over the past 3 years and since they are 8, 10, 12 and 13 they really don’t understand how hard times are. We live in Chicago and I missed the deadline for Toys for Tots so I am begging for anyone to lend a helping hand. My Lord is My Shepard and I shall have faith. Thank You

    I might have a tree available after Thanksgiving for a donation – in the Chicago area or the South Bend, IN area.

    Hi I am a single mother of three boys, one seven and twins who will be two on December 22nd. I am also a full time college student and spent everything I had to move to Oahu (from Alaska), to finish my degree. I am surviving on a very low, fixed income and am reaching out to any who could help my family this year. I can’t afford a tree this year and my boys loved it so much last year…it breaks my heart not to have one for them. It would mean so much! Thank you

I am so happy and grateful that I qualified for a grant to start college this January. Its going to be and has been a struggle to survive everyday but I am working very hard to change these hard times into a better life for me and my babygirl.
