For twenty-three years the annual Good Will-Hinckley Festival of Trees has been a key event and holiday tradition for families in Central Maine. Year after year our community comes through to ensure the ongoing success of this magical event. 

Though the event takes place in December, our planning happens all year long and there are lots of ways you can get involved.  We invite you to become a part of this event and tradition by viewing the opportunities below.


We are currently looking for volunteers to help us solicit items for our raffle and auction, find sponsors and decorations, plan new events during the week, and to volunteer the week of.  If you are interested please call Barbara at 207-238-4281 or email her at bgourley@gwh.org

Beautifully decorated, trees with unique designs are the hallmark of this week long event.  Come be a part of the magic by decorating your own.  If you have any questions about decorating  please call Barbara at 207-238-4281 or by email at bgourley@gwh.org.

Thousands of community members, businesses, schools and group homes visited us in December, 2015 to take part in our annual Festival of Trees event.  To see everyone come together and support our students was nothing short of amazing.   From sponsors, to decorators, to greeters, to donating items, everyone's help was a testament of their support for our students current and future success.
