2020 Santa Tree

Athens County Children Services is proud to coordinate the 33rd annual Santa Tree Project

While proudly organized by Athens County Children Services, this project is funded by the generosity of individuals, families and businesses here in Athens County. Together, we served over 1,200 children with holiday gifts in 2019. We could not have done that without community members like you.

While we continue to cope with and respond to the COVID-19 pandemic, we need to announce some changes to the way we work together to serve families and children through the Santa Tree Project. 

With the health and safety of our staff, the families we serve, and our community being our top priority, we have made the difficult decision to not accept physical gifts from the community at our agency, or at the gift return bin that has traditionally been housed at the Market on State. 

This year, we are appealing to our community for financial contributions and gifts sent virtually through our Amazon Wish Lists. We know how much our community loves shopping for our individual children, and we will return to that practice as soon as it is safe to do so. We hope you will understand and join us in spreading a little holiday cheer this year. 

At this time we are serving children who work directly with Athens County Children Services. If more funding becomes available, we will extend an application opportunity to the general public.
