Christmas Tree Giveaway

Brightening the holidays for families in need.

Since the onset of COVID, Nashville families have had to contend with inflation, affordable housing, and wage shortages, which can absolutely put a damper on the holidays. We know that minority and low-income families get hit the hardest this time of year. With the help of our local sponsors, The Carrie Mae Williams Center has partnered with Gardens of Babylon Landscapes to give away live Christmas trees to three families in the Donelson Middle School community. The two organizations plan to make this a yearly incentive as they work to increase community connectedness.
