Newtown Youth and Family Services

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 80 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 services. 

Donors Receive:
  • Organization/name on sign placed next to donated item.
  • Organization/name mentioned during drawing.

Guidelines for donating a tree:
  • Trees can be artificial or live.
  • Trees can be lit or non-lit.
  • All ornaments must be securely wired to the tree.
  • Thursday, December 1st 9:30AM - 12:00PM & 5:00 - 8:00PM
  • Drop off is at Trinity Episcopal Church (Glover Community Room).
If you would like provide a donation to the Festival of Trees, sign up here.
