Toss your tree, send a Scout to DC

Posted by Ralph Ranalli January 1, 2008 07:05 AM



Local Boy Scouts will pick up discarded Christmas trees Saturday as a fundraiser for a trip to Washington, D.C.

Donations (the organization suggests $10) should be placed in a sealed envelope and wrapped around the bottom of the tree with a rubber band. For safety reasons, the Scouts cannot accept trees with tinsel, flocked trees, trees with nails, artificial trees, wreathes with metal shape wires, or trees with any other metal attached.

Trees should be place curbside by 8 a.m. In case of rain, the pickup will be moved to Jan. 12.
