Community Gift Tree
This annual event in November is a collaboration between organizations in the community that serve low income families and local businesses.  Choices for Children, the El Dorado County Office of Education, Happy Kids Preschool, CASA, and Alta Regional all select their neediest families to participate in the program. Gift cards that identify the needs and wishes of children are placed on trees throughout the community.  Community members then select one or more cards, purchase gifts, and drop them off at convenient locations. We also accept monetary donations to provide supplemental gifts. For more information contact Stacy Smithee at 530.676.0707 or
