About The Guardsmen Tree Lot
Every year since 1947, The Guardsmen organization has sold Christmas trees in San Francisco to benefit at-risk youth in the Bay Area. As an all-volunteer organization, members take time away from work in December to don green jump suits, drive delivery trucks, and get their hands dirty handling and standing Christmas trees.
Members of The Guardsmen believe that the many opportunities afforded them in achieving personal success are directly related to the broad range of positive experiences they were fortunate to have growing up. The Guardsmen mission is to provide under-privileged youth in the Bay Area opportunities throughout their childhood to have positive life experiences outside the often-harsh realities of their daily lives.
The proceeds from this Christmas tradition have given tens of thousands of at-risk kids the opportunity to attend summer camps, after school programs and private schools. Thank you for participating in this tradition and supporting the less fortunate members of our community. We look forward to seeing you down at "the lot" again this year!
Happy Holidays from The Guardsmen
