Aurora Theatre presents

Festival of Trees

Nov 23, 2023-Dec 23, 2023

The Festival of Trees returns for a 17th Year!

Beautiful trees will deck the halls of the Lawrenceville Arts Center campus! 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-persishable grocery item to place under your favorite tree to benefit the Boys & Girls Club of Lawrenceville, local community food banks, Planned Pethood,  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 2023 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!

  • 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.
