Community tree fund returns to support local families, FFA

Support Local Journalism


The Winters Community Tree Fund has announced the launch of a 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 Winters and the Winters Joint Unified School District that have been requested or been identified as in need of assistance this holiday season.

The neighbor-led group will start purchasing trees around Nov. 30, pending availability, and asks you to give in any of the following ways:
• Venmo directly to @WintersTreeFund (four digits 5367)
• 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 Dec. 3. Families receiving trees will be notified on Nov. 26.

The grassroots campaign asks you to give at 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. All funds are meant to be spent, but surplus tree funding will roll over to next year.
