Every year, our local McDonald's owners and operators place a holiday tree in each of their restaurants throughout central Iowa. Beginning on Black Friday and running through Christmas Eve, customers can take an ornament from the tree, purchase the items, and return that item under the tree at their local McDonald’s.

We have about 55 McDonald's that participate in Giving Tree each year, so we need a lot of
donations. They do not have to be fancy; just simple paper cutout ornaments will do, as we will place stickers from our wish list on the ornaments. These ornaments should be holiday-themed and family-friendly. We want you to have fun with this, so everyone can be creative as much as they would like. However, please keep in mind that we will need room to place our wish list sticker on the ornament.

This is a great opportunity for larger groups (especially groups with kids) to volunteer and
deliver to the House. This opportunity will take place outside of the House, as we often do not
have space for larger groups to come in and make ornaments. You will need to provide your
own materials.

For more information on annual volunteering for the Giving Tree, please call or email our Volunteer Coordinator, Maggie at (515) 204-2005 or
