We’re One Wilmington Still Looking For More Trees For Festival Of Trees, Announces More Event Details

WILMINGTON, MA — Below is a message from the WOW Festival of Trees organizers:

We are a just few weeks away from We’re One Wilmington’s (WOW) 8th Annual Festival of Trees which will take place on Saturday, December 1st from 9AM to 9PM and Sunday, December 2nd from 9AM to 3PM at Villanova Hall (126 Middlesex Avenue in Wilmington). This free family-friendly event features a raffle of fantastic holiday trees, wreaths and baskets.  Pizza, baked goods and refreshments will be available and tons of entertainment is planned throughout the weekend.

How To Get Involved

WOW is still accepting tree, wreath and basket donations for the Festival. All donations are tax-deductible and without them our event would not be such a huge success. Donations needed include:

  • Decorated artificial trees, gift baskets or wreaths
  • Cases of water, juice, soda or items for the bake sale

Proceeds from this event will be used to purchase holiday gifts for local families in need and to help fund WOW’s other good will initiatives throughout the year.

For information about making a donation, please contact Becky McGrath at mcgrathbecky@gmail.comor register your donation using our online form.

Again this year, the Festival will feature WOW’s annual Angel Giving Tree. Children and adults throughout Wilmington decorate ornaments for the tree, which are tagged with holiday gift requests for community members in need. Visitors are invited to take a tagged ornament; purchase the gift items requested; and drop it back to the Festival with the label attached. The gift donor then keeps the Angel ornament as a token of appreciation for their good deed.

We are delighted that several community groups will be on hand at the Festival selling items for their winter fundraisers including:

  • Wilmington High School Basketball: poinsettias and raffle tickets Saturday 9-3
  • Wilmington High School Student Council: Wildcat magnets Saturday 9-3
  • Wilmington Community Fund: ornaments Saturday 9-9 and Sunday 9-3
  • Wilmington Youth Soccer:  winter hats and backpacks: Sunday 9-3
  • Wilmington CATS: Saturday 3-9
