One Giving Tree is a 501c3 nonprofit organization. Our mission is to provide Christmas tree “kits” to local kids and their families in the communities we serve. Those communities are Gilroy, San Martin, Morgan Hill, Hollister, and South San Jose, California.

A Christmas tree “kit” consists of: a fresh, live Christmas tree: enough ornaments and hooks to decorate the tree in a re-useable shopping bag: a hand-made, eco friendly tree stand: a bio-degradable hydration bowl: and a waterless hydration system.

We provide our Christmas tree kits at no cost to our recipient families. The majority of our families receive their tree kits via our nonprofit partners; Community Solutions, Rebekah Children Services, Santa Clara County Office of Education, South Valley Community Church, Luigi Aprea Elementary School, Resilient Families Gilroy, Edward Boss Prado Foundation, Nueva Vida (New Life San Ysidro), YMCA Mount Madonna, GAL’s, St. Joseph’s Family Center, and Pathway Society Inc. However, we do also provide trees for local kids and their families upon requests and as available.

If you are in need of a Christmas tree kit, please contact us on or before December 1st. We cannot guarantee that we will have extra trees. However, we will do our best to fulfill your request. Email:, or call/text: 408-857-4795.
