The Winters Community Tree Fund has announced the launch of a week-long giving campaign focused on providing holiday trees to families in need.
The trees will be ordered and delivered by the Winters FFA, boosting the student group’s efforts while also helping local families in need. The goal is to raise enough funds for 25 to 50 trees for families in the Winters Joint Unified School District that have been identified as in need of assistance this holiday season.
The group will start purchasing trees on November 30th and asks you to give in any of the following ways:
- Venmo directly to @WintersTreeFund (phone ending *5361).
- Donate in person at First Northern Bank, by referencing the checking account ending *3325.
- Write a check out to any organizer: Jack Vickrey, Richard Casavecchia or Taylor Buley, to be deposited in the account.
The last day to give is December 3.
The grassroots campaign asks you to give any amount to sponsor at least part of a tree, which cost $75 each to procure. Both the recipients and the sponsors will remain anonymous.
