DONATE A CHRISTMAS TREE
CHRISTMAS TREE INFORMATION
From traditional to unique, let your creativity soar by choosing to decorate an artificial tree (from table top up in size). The sponsor is responsible for providing their own tree at their own expense. Trees must be artificial, pre-lit, and flame retardant. Decorations should enhance the overall value of the tree. Sponsors are responsible for providing their own extension cord (minimum of 12' in length). Entries must be tasteful in design and decoration and should be appropriate for display during a family-oriented community event. All decorations, accessories (such as tree skirts and tree toppers), and gifts will be raffled with the tree. Any faux gifts must be clearly marked "for display only".
Below are some creative ideas. For additional theme ideas, Google "Festival of Trees".
• Children's Trees (Disney, Frozen, Cars, etc.)
• Christmas Era
• Gift Cards/Money Tree/Scratcher Trees
• Themes representing a business or organization
• Trees specific to women/men
Please note that a schedule will be sent to all donors the week prior to the event so that they can come to the Veterans Home and put up their tree.
Contact Patti Baccus at firstname.lastname@example.org or (401) 413-6280 for additional information and to reserve a space at our event for your tree.
Deadline is November 4, 2019. Minimum Value of Trees: $100.
