Donate to the Festival of Trees

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' mental health, autism and community programs. 

Donors Receive:
  • Organization/Name next to image where items up for bid are presented.
  • Organization/Name with Festival of Trees info on NYFS website.
  • Social media posts announcing Name/Organization’s participation.

Guidelines for donating a tree:
  • Trees must not be taller than 5 feet.
  • Trees can be artificial or live.
  • Trees can be lit or non-lit.
  • All ornaments must be securely wired to the tree.
  • Saturday, December 5th - 9:00am - 4:00pm
