“Christmas Trees for Good Cause?”

by Prince Of Petworth November 30, 2015 at 9:45 am 14 Comments


“Dear PoPville,

Are you (or your readers) aware of any organizations in DC that sell Christmas trees to support a good cause? We’d love for our purchase to support a charity, if at all possible. Happy Holidays!”

Besides 6th Engine I’ve gotten a lot of emails from Elementary Schools having fundraiser tree sales – Ross – 17th and R St, NW; Bancroft – 18th and Newtwon St, NW; Eaton – 3301 Lowell Street NW. If you know of others please add in the comments.

438 Massachusetts Ave, NW

    Support a local DC elementary school.

    Ross Elementary School is holding their Annual Holiday Tree Sale this year on the following dates and times:

    · Friday, December 4th from 4pm – 8pm

    · Saturday, December 5th from 9am – 4pm

    · Sunday, December 6th from 9am – 4pm

    · Saturday, December 12th from 9am – 4pm (if there are any remaining trees)

    Trees will be available at Ross Elementary in sizes ranging from 2-foot table tops to 10-feet high. We only sell the highest quality “#1 Frasier Fir” trees unlike the big corporate companies selling trees in the area.
    Pre-orders can be made until Thursday, December 3rd by clicking the below link:

    Delivery Service Is Available on Saturday and Sunday Only ($10 delivery fee for up to 6-7’ trees or $20 for trees 7-8’ and greater). The delivery area is as far west as Rock Creek Parkway, as far north as Calvert and Columbia Roads, as far east as North Capitol Street, and as far south as K Street.

    All proceeds benefit the Ross Elementary PTA.

      We got a beautiful 6 foot one Sunday from West. Pulled up right in front of the school on 14th, chatted with some parents (and Principal), my son played with some kids – an all around pleasant, no stress, experience.

    Brent Elementary also sells trees and wreaths. You can pick them up or they will deliver to your house if you live around Capitol Hill. They will even pick one out for you if you don’t care enough to. I did that last year and it was a great tree!

  • MamaZen

    The Latin American Montessori Bilingual (LAMB) Public Charter School is having a tree, wreath and garland sale on December 5 and 6. There will be trees, wreaths, and garlands of many sizes and varieties. LAMB’s mission is to create a self-directed learning environment in which children build a foundation of knowledge essential for a life time of learning while developing bi-literacy in English and Spanish. The school serves 340 students from pre-school through 5th grade, and students come from all eight wards across the District of Columbia.

    The event will be held at LAMB’s South Dakota campus at 1800 Perry Street NE. Proceeds support programs for teachers and students.

    More information and a pre-order form are available at the below link:

  • Truxtoner

    Anyone know where to get one in Truxton Circle area? Does the Bloomingdale Farmer’s Market have them on the weekends? Would obviously prefer to buy from a school/charity, but will be getting one either way.

    • AnonV2

      The Bloomingdale market is done for the season. I saw some rumor that Big Bear may be doing trees again, but their holiday market isn’t until 12/19 which is kinda late for tree sales. One of the market vendors sold trees on a couple December weekends 5-6 years ago. Not sure if the rumor is that returning this year.

    • Adam on Hanover

      6th Engine is a pretty easy walk down 4th to Mass Ave from Truxton (if you’re not getting a really big tree).

  • Lovely wreaths (with berries & pine), door swag, custom made bows and 15′ garland are being sold by the non-profit Historic Congressional Cemetery on Capitol Hill. Prices $20-$25.

  • Savannah

    West Education Campus is selling trees on the weekends at 14th and Farragut Streets. All proceeds go directly to the school.
