The Gift of a
Green Christmas Tree
(Q4 - 2014)
The Christmas tree is an endearing tradition that brightens the hearts of adults and children alike. This year marked our 11th year of The Gift of a Green Christmas Tree project. On December 6th, 2014 over 250 volunteers spent a few hours of their day helping deliver 361 Christmas trees along with all the trimmings to northern Colorado families in need.
Through our partnership with The Colorado State Forest Service, we harvested over 350 fresh cut trees for our project, while at the same time helping with a forest management project of thinning out trees in an old burn scar area of Pingree Park...a win win!
