The Giving Tree


This Barrett holiday tradition – THE CHARLES BARRETT GIVING TREE — enables our students, parents, and faculty to donate to our Barrett families in need for food, gifts and clothing for the holidays. Since 2005, we have been able to purchase at least $3,000 worth of gift cards every year for children and families at our school that might not have had as bright a holiday without our help.

Children are encouraged to give from their piggy banks, too (cash and coins are welcome). This is an opportunity – a life lesson in giving. Along with the donations, children decorate leaves to send in to school.

The decorated leaves are added to THE CHARLES BARRETT GIVING TREE, which is displayed in the school lobby. Each leaf means we are supporting our families and making their holiday as beautiful and full as our giving tree. This is a wonderful opportunity to give back to our own families and we encourage everyone to consider being a part of this Barrett holiday tradition.

All money donated goes directly to gift cards that are distributed to Charles Barrett families.
