Gift a tree in with the Rotary Club of Rutland

The Rotary Club of Rutland has generously supported local non-profits and community partners for over 100 years. Selling Christmas trees for over 60 years has been the club’s largest community engagement and fundraiser.

This year, due to Covid-19, many families are in need of community support and may not be able to buy a Christmas tree. The Gift a Tree program connects generous donors with families in need extending joyful happiness this holiday season.

With each $45 donation one Rotary Christmas Tree to be given to a local family in need. The family will be provided a voucher to select a Rotary Christmas Tree of any size. The Rotary Club of Rutland will give a children’s book and ornament to each receiving family to accompany the Gift a Tree. The club, in partnership with BROC, will administer the distribution of the vouchers.

“Our hope is that the number of vouchers will come close to the number of families in need. So in its pilot year, we welcome all businesses and individuals to support the program.” said Rotary Club of Rutland President Will Gormley.

Rotary Christmas Tree sales begin Saturday, Nov. 28 at Main Street Park in Rutland.

To make a donation, now through Tuesday, Dec. 1, visit rutlandcityrotary.org.
