Support a local non-profit by buying a Christmas tree

·1 min read

If you’re in search of a Christmas tree and would also like to help a local non-profit, Club Richelieu Timmins is selling fresh-cut Christmas trees.

For the first time, the organization is holding a Christmas sale with all the money going back to support the club.

There are 100 trees available for reservation for a cost of $50 each.

Trees will then be available for pick up from Dec. 10 to Dec. 12 at 19 Preston St.

"If it becomes a very big event, we're going to convert it into a massive, annual event," said Patrick Dionne, club president. "Whatever profit we make, we might use some of it this year or in the following years."

This year, the club will also provide Christmas gifts to 22 families. The annual tradition will serve 85 people and close to 60 children, Dionne said.

Because of the pandemic, club members won't be gathering to wrap the gifts, Dionne said. They will do it at home and then deliver it to the families on Saturday, Dec. 12.

For more information or to reserve a tree, contact Club Richelieu Timmins.
