Christmas Tree Project Seeks Volunteers

BEND, OR -- A week away from December 25th, The Christmas Tree Project of Bend needs help giving fully decorated trees to families in need.

The local non-profit provides families with physical or financial limitations with fully-decorated trees. “It takes a village to be able to make anything work and it is our volunteers that make the difference that actually allow this to happen.” Founder Lindsay Greco tells KBND News they have enough trees for the 100 or so families they serve, but they need help making them festive, “I am in need of Christmas tree stands and lights. Each year, there are always shortages in certain categories, and certainly stands and lights are kind of the highlights right now,” she adds they need volunteers too, “If individuals have access to trucks or are willing to help out with the loading of trees or families and picking out their decorations…Always so grateful to receive the help.”

Greco started the project nine years ago and says they deliver nearly 100 trees each year. “Families from all over our region are continuing to find this project when really realizing that they may not be able to otherwise have a tree over the holidays,” she says.
