Trees should be in the community the week of November 13th - we will post a list of locations on this page closer to that date. 


Visit a Helping Hands Tree in the Community (Tree Locations TBD) and select an Elf Hat:

A corresponding sign out sheet will be available to sign out your chosen “Hat”. This is critical and helps us track down gifts should we need to.


The Elf Hat will have all pertinent information related to age/sex and gift request of a child. This will also have the due date of when the gift is due back to location. 

Purchase, Wrap and Return Your Gift:

​You will return the gift back to the Helping Hands Tree location you got the Elf Hat  from originally. Place the original Elf Hat onto the gift. This will act as a gift tag and has a code on it that allows us to identify which child the gift goes to.

Make sure to return your gift to where you picked it up from by the listed due date! This is VERY IMPORTANT in order for our elves to account for all the gifts and get the North Pole ready for distribution.

If you were not able to get an “elf hat” but want to contribute, please check out our Amazon Wish List pages - board games and school age appropriate books are always welcome. These items are set up to ship directly to Helping Hands and do not require gift wrapping.
