Calling All of Santa's SJS Helpers!


We couldn’t host such a festive and successful event without the help of

our entire school community.  Join the fun and cheer!  

There are many opportunities to help including: 


Toy Raffle - Donate an Item or Cash Donation

There are three ways to help with the Toy Raffle:

  • Donate an item

  • Get a group of friends to pitch-in and donate an item together!

  • Make a cash donation and our Toy Raffle Chairs will shop for you!


To donate an item, or if you have questions please contact Lori Kane or Kellye O’Brien

Santa's Bakeshop-Donate some of your homemade treats


Silent Auction - Donate an Item

T&T Silent Auction will have some of the same great items from past years such as the front row seats to the Christmas concert, or a reading of the Twas the Night Before Christmas by a secret VIP!

We are looking for additional items and hope that you can help out!  If you or someone you know would be willing to donate something such as ski passes or equipment, concert or sport tickets, sports memorabilia, spa gift certificate or a special service they may provide, please contact Sarah Williams at or Kerrie Grover at

Wrapping Paper-Have old unused rolls or bags from Christmases Past? We Can Use Them!


New this year, we are asking for donations of wrapping paper. If you have any rolls of Christmas wrap that you are unable to use this year (if you cannot repeat or have extra on hand), please consider donating this to Trees & Trimmings. Any unused, still packaged rolls will be sold in the boutique. If you have any holiday gift bags, we would be happy to use in the gift wrapping area.


If you have any questions, please contact Amy Munchak at


Please help us promote Trees and Trimmings.

Would you post a yard sign on your street? Do you frequent an establishment in and around Wellesley, where they would be willing to post a sign on their bulletin board or window? Will you place a magnet on your car advertising the event? Open to telling your friends about Trees and Trimmings on Social Media? We would love any and all help. Thank you to those who have posted signs in and around Wellesley already!


Please contact Andrea Belton at, for a Trees & Trimmings yard sign, additional car magnets, an electronic graphic to print, or a larger 16x20 poster to post. Thank YOU!
