Aurora Theatre presents

Festival of Trees

Nov 25, 2022-Dec 22, 2022

The Festival of Trees returns for a 16th Year!

Over 40 trees – the most ever, will deck the halls of the Lawrenceville Arts Center. From the whimsically clever to the breathtakingly spectacular, these trees have been decorated by local businesses and organizations to inspire helping others this holiday season. Bring your new unwrapped toy or non-perishable grocery item to place under your favorite tree to benefit the Boys & Girls Club of Lawrenceville, local community food banks, and the outreach efforts of BLACT ATL, Inc.

Scroll down below to see the amazing haul we were able to donate with your generosity! 

This year we are collecting:

  • All toys must be new and unwrapped.
  • Our goal this year is to donate 2022 toys directly to families in need! Sounds like a lot – but with your help, we know we can not only meet this goal, but beat this goal! Your generous donations are welcome!

Grocery Items:
  • Non-perishable foods and personal care items.
  • Most needed food items: applesauce, canned chicken, pasta sauce, jelly.
  • Most needed personal care items: liquid dish soap, laundry detergent, shampoo, diapers (adult and children’s sizes: 5-6/2T-3T pull-ups), toilet paper, wipes.

Pet Supplies:
  • New this year: we’re collecting for dogs and cats in shelters.
  • Most needed items: dry dog/puppy food, dry or canned cat/kitten food, sealed treats, dog and cat shampoo, general cleaning supplies, pet and hardware store gift cards. 
  • Donations for our furry friends will support local animal shelters through Operation Santa Paws for Pets.
