The Holiday Sharing Tree is a non-profit, seasonal gift-giving project that provides gifts to people in need in Blue Earth and Nicollet counties during the holiday season. The project is funded by individual and corporate / organizational donations. Special fund raising/grant opportunities arise occasionally, but our primary source of funding is through public donations. A board of 12 volunteer business professionals, along with a project manager coordinate the 6-week project.
Since 1985 the Holiday Sharing Tree has provided over 48,000 gifts to individuals. For most, these are the only gifts they receive during the holiday season.
