Our annual Christmas Gift program for children and youth is ready to go, online!  Please use this Sign Up link to see the list of kids’ Christmas gift wishes: 


This Angel Tree sign up is in place of our annual Giving Tree at the Palisade Chamber of Commerce, due to COVID restrictions. We greatly appreciate the Palisade Chamber’s past help with this effort and we’re happy to give them a break this year.

Every year, CMS participants may sign up their children, from newborns to 17 year-olds, for the Christmas gift program. Each child lists three wishes and gift donors may select one (or a few smaller gifts to combine, especially much-needed items of clothing) to purchase. Gift donors bring the wrapped gift, labeled with the child’s identification number, to a drop-off location. This year we will accept gifts at the CMS Hospitality Center in Palisade by appointment through December 15. You may also drop off the gifts at the Eureka! McConnell Science Museum in Grand Junction by appointment. We appreciate the Museum’s partnership in making the holidays brighter for many children.

As additional children’s gift lists are received by CMS, we will add them to the Angel Tree.

Please feel free to email or call CMS at 970-464-5226 for more information on this program.

Thank you for your kindness this holiday season.
