Community First Christmas Project Rules

  • Each school is provided a pre-lit Christmas tree & skirt.
  • Each school is assigned a Charity that will benefit from their tree.
  • Each school has a particular group or organization assigned to the project that will decorate the tree and help solicit donations to their charity.
  • Each school is provided a $250 gift card for decorations.
    • They should keep and turn in all receipts to Danielle Fisher at Rusty Eck Ford.
    • They should also turn in the card with any money left over.
    • That leftover money from the gift card will be donated to their charity.
  • Each school will name their tree.
  • Each charity will provide a “Wish List”.
  • Each item on the Wish List is assigned a point value. The point value system is managed by Janet Cervantes-Hageman and decisions are final.
  • All gift and cash/check/card donations will be given 1 point per dollar.
  • Each point is a vote for that school.
  • On Saturday, December 1st at noon all schools will report to Rusty Eck Ford and trees will be decorated.
  • Your wish list and tree name will be placed on your tree and donations may begin.
  • Each school should circulate the need to “vote” by filling the wish list items or donating money to each of their charities.
  • The schools may be included in video footage of the event.
  • Each charity will send people from their organization to attend the kick off on December 1st, 2018.
  • I encourage each of you to get to know your charity and what they do for our community.

Voting Takes Place Between December 1st Until Noon On Saturday, December 22nd

  • Schools may collect items at their school and deliver to their tree sometime prior to the 22nd to be tallied.
  • Schools will be given an email blast that they can send to their data base.
  • Schools will be given links to the wish list and logos for marketing on the school webpage.
