About the Tree of Sharing

Last year donations from the community helped brighten Christmas for over 600 children. This year’s mission is Helping Children have a Happy Holiday Season

The Tree of Sharing Project does not receive government funding. The project’s success is dependent on the generosity of Lake County residents, services and private organizations.

This year the program anticipates serving 600 children ranging from newborns to 17 years of age with gifts of  toys, books and warm outerwear. Any monetary contribution would be greatly appreciated so that the “elves” can purchase gifts. Checks may be written to St. Vincent Hospital Foundation / Tree of Sharing and mailed to 822 W 4th St. Leadville, CO 80461.

You may also go to and click on the “give” button in the top right buttons and make a credit card donation. Please note that it is for Tree of Sharing. If you would like to volunteer, at any level, on Tree of Sharing please contact Karen Rinehart: 719-486-7135.

Thank you in advance for all your time and efforts to help make this a special holiday season for Lake County children.
