The Soroptimist Community Christmas Tree Project is a one on one gift-giving Tree sponsored annually by Soroptimist International of Modesto and Modesto North.  Partnering with us are KHOP 95.1FM and Vintage Faire Mall. The Tree and our Kiosk opens on “Black Friday” and will close on December 18th, with limited hours posted on site at our Kiosk.  Our Kiosk and Tree  are  on the Upper Level of Vintage Faire Mall above Santa’s Village.  The project is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization, tax ID #77-0435675.


Our Mission:  A child, no matter their circumstance, deserves to live the dream of a “Magical Christmas Morning!” Please help us give the “Gift of Hope” to one of our children on the Soroptimist Community Christmas Tree.   

How does it work?

Tags representing each child are placed on the tree.  The tag indicates the child’s first name, age, sex, clothing and shoe sizes, in addition to information about “a needed gift” and “a Christmas Wish”.  Individuals select a tag and then check it out at our Kiosk.  After shopping for the child, the tag and gifts are returned “unwrapped” to the Kiosk.  The gifts are then taken to our wrapping facility, where they are wrapped  and then picked up and delivered to the children by the referring agencies or schools.  This program is an opportunity to bring a little “Christmas Magic” into the life of a child. For most of these children, the gifts provided through  this project are the only ones that they will receive for Christmas.

Volunteer and Community Service Opportunities

            We are seeking volunteers to work at our Kiosk in the Mall and at our Wrapping Facility.  If you would like to help, please  go directly to                                  our “Sign Up Links”.   To sign up at our Kiosk at Vintage Faire Mall go to                                 To sign up at our Wraproom go to
