JoyCatchers trees reach the hearts of many who face hardship, loneliness or illness during a season when so many others are in an exuberant, celebratory mode. It lets them know someone cares.

In 2020, unable to gather in groups due to Covid-19, JoyCatchers created Individual Mini-Tree Decorating Kits to give to seniors and veterans for them to catch the joy of creating their own tree.

Here are some of the recipients of JoyCatchers decorated trees:
