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. 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.

Sign-Up Deadline: November 17th at 11:59 pm

Thank you for your interest! At this time we're unable to accept any more applications due to the high volume of applicants. We appreciate your understanding, and invite you to reapply next year.
