How it works!

The Shasta College Giving Tree is an event sponsored by the Shasta College Student Senate. Currently enrolled Shasta College students who have children ages 17 and under are encouraged to sign up their children to be assigned to a Secret Santa who will purchase a gift for your child. Gifts are given anonymously.

Please see below for some important information!

Sign up for Giving Tree

Please note that at this time we are only allowing the first 100 families to sign up for this supplemental gift assistance. (Each family can register up to six children.) In the spirit of the holidays, if you are a part of another gift exchange program locally, please leave this program for students who may not have another resource.

  • The application is currently closed as we've reached our sign-up limit of 100. We're exploring options to reopen the form and will post an update once we have more information. Alternatively we recommend reviewing 211Norcal's list of Holiday Donations programs that are being offered locally. Please stay tuned for further announcements.

Important Dates

  • Giving Tree Sign-Ups: Closed
  • Gift Pick-Up: December 11th - 15th 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

Secret Santas

If you are interested in adopting a family (we encourage adopters to adopt a family and all of the children in that family), please contact Student Life at More information will be shared soon, so keep an eye out on your email!
