The Giving Tree


13th Annual Giving Tree at Capital High School

For the past 13 years, the staff, students and community of Capital High School have spread holiday cheer to those less fortunate through the CHS Giving Tree. Your donations go towards the purchase of gift cards for deserving CHS students just in time for the holidays. Especially this year, too many CHS students are struggling to meet even their most basic needs. It is a blessing to let these students know that they are seen and cared for by doing a little special something for them during a tough time in their lives. For some, this may be the only gift they receive this year.

We could not do this without the support of our staff, students and community members. We have found, over the years, that the best way to gift these students is with a $25 gift card selected especially for them. This way, they can truly get the gift they have been wanting, but often, it's for something they need.

Annually we serve approximately 300 students through the Giving Tree. Each year the need is even greater due to rising costs of living, from food to energy bills. Since the pandemic, this website has been in place each year to accept donations to the Capital High School Giving Tree. 100% of your donation will go to CHS students in need, any donation fees are paid for by the Capital High School Parent Organization. 

If you have any questions regarding the CHS Giving Tree, please contact Sarah Sadlemyer ([email protected]  ) or Jody Chipman ([email protected]).

We thank you for all your generous support for our students during this Holiday Season.
