Tree of Joy

The Tree of Joy provides new gifts for seniors and kids in need (in foster care) around the county.  We welcome business partners and individuals.

In 2023, our business partners included InSitu, Providence Memorial, Copper West,  Alpine Veterinary Hospital, Nunamaker Real Estate,  Directors Mortgage, and Cascade Acupuncture, . We also had several individuals who helped bring joy to a senior or child. 


 Participants receive a "gift wish" from a senior or child and then go shopping.  Gifts are placed into a festive gift bag and delivered to the organizations we support.    In the photo, staff at Hood River  Care Center gratefully accept gifts for seniors and others needing skilled nursing  at Christmas Tree of Joy 2023.

For 2024
