The Christmas Tree Project started three years ago when David and Michelle Fein put an ad on Craigslist in the Colorado Springs area to give away a Christmas tree to a needy family. The effort ignited the entire city and since it began, over 800 trees have been given away.

Now the idea has spread with the goal to provide fully decorated Christmas trees to families in need around the country. Locally, the Wilshire Rotary has partnered with Project Christmas Tree.  If you’d like to partner to help L.A. area families, go to or call (213) 369-6065.

You can visit in person to pay for and donate a tree and the rotary will deliver it to a needy family. Hours are 9 a.m. – 9 p.m. seven days a week at 568 N. Larchmont Blvd. Or you can drop off new ornaments, lights or new homemade ornaments.

If you know a family who can’t afford a tree this year, you can give the info to the Wilshire Rotary at the address above or or call (213) 369-6065.

The deadline is Dec 23.
