SPOTLIGHT — Sharing Tree
Sharing Tree, a 501(c)(6) organization previously known as Christmas Connection, was founded in 1984 with a goal of providing families a dignified, no-cost shopping experience. Located in Moore, Sharing Tree now offers four programs, Community Connection, Crisis Connection, Classroom Connection, and Christmas Connection, each providing low-income families the ability to select items they need at no cost to them.
Through its four programs, Sharing Tree serves central Oklahoma parents in need of Christmas gifts and winter clothing for their children, families affected by total loss from a disaster such as fire or tornado, Oklahoma City Public Schools students in need of school uniforms, and families in need at other times of the year.
Sharing Tree relies on donors and welcomes assistance from the public in the form of volunteers to work the store and warehouse, financial contributions, and donations of items.
