To share love, kindness, joy & cheer with Central IL families by providing gently-loved Christmas trees & décor free of charge to families in need.
Trees With Love was born from the tears of a young girl. Shopping at a local store, we observed a young girl pleading with her mother for a small Christmas tree which she could hang her newly made ornament. We overheard the mother state that they could not afford a tree. Our heart was broken & we knew we had to do something to help. After some tears of our own, heart-tugging & prayer, Trees With Love was born. We are a small family-run, faith based ministry that collects new & gently-loved Christmas trees and décor all year long and re-gifts them to families in need in the Springfield, IL area.
Families are referred to us beginning in October from various sources (schools, shelters, churches, etc). Trees are delivered free of charge to families in need, beginning in November.
Receiving families must live within a 35 mile radius of Pawnee, IL and have at least one child under the age of 18 that resides in the home. Trees are available on a first come, first serve basis and only as our inventory allows. One tree per household every 4 years.
