Holiday Tree Lighting


Menlo Park friends, family, and neighbors are invited to help "light up the season of giving" with an outdoor tree lighting ceremony and donation drive.  Join the fun and giving spirit as Mayor Drew Combs lights the big tree in Fremont Park. Community members are encouraged to bring a non-perishable food item to donate to others in need. Donated food items will benefit local families with the help of local nonprofit organization, Samaritan House. After the tree lighting, take a stroll down Santa Cruz Avenue and enjoy the many local businesses and restaurants that downtown Menlo Park has to offer.

Donated food items must be non-perishable, unexpired food items in their original, unopened retail packaging. Examples of needed food items include: pastas, grains, rice, macaroni, peanut butter, instant potatoes, breakfast cereals, canned fruits and vegetables, and similar nutritious food items.

Join us for a treasured community event that brings family, friends and neighbors together to celebrate the holiday season. Rain or shine!!!
