our mission

Light a Tree, Light a Smile, Inc. is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization whose mission is to provide low-income families in the community with artificial Christmas trees, lights, and other decorations.

All too often, children go without the simple joy of having a Christmas tree at Christmas because their parents can’t afford one. Our organization is set up to help make those simple dreams come true.

Here at Light a Tree, Light a Smile, we collect new and gently used artificial Christmas trees all year to distribute the trees as Christmas gifts to the less fortunate families in our community.

All cash donations go directly toward providing Christmas trees and other Christmas decorations to make our community’s children smile.

“I was raised by a single mother of four, who did her very best to provide us with everything we needed, as well as the things we wanted. Even at her best there were times when she had to make a choice between buying us some of the things on our Christmas list or getting us a Christmas tree.

As a child, I always felt that even if I didn’t get all the things on my list, if I could at least have that moment with my family where we all gathered and decorated the tree, then my Christmas would be complete. I started my organization so that we can help spread joy to families and homes by giving them a Christmas tree that they can share for years to come, and through this I will tell my story.”
