Festival of Trees - Donate a Tree, Wreath or Gift

We invite you to participate in this year's Festival of Trees by decorating and donating a holiday tree, wreath, centerpiece or holiday gift basket. Each year over 50 items are decorated and donated by local individuals, friends, families, businesses, clubs and organizations.

Without donors, the Festival of Trees would not be such a successful and spectacular event! All proceeds from the Festival of Trees benefit Newtown Youth & Family Services.
