We have a beautiful, live, 6 ft Christmas tree. We are leaving town early next week and would love to pass it along to someone in need … or just someone who hasn’t had time to buy one. I tried calling a few neighborhood churches, but they declined to take it.
Any advice on finding a new home for this tree?”
If you know of a worthy home please email me at [email protected] and I’ll connect you with OP.
