For the 78th year, the Kiwanis Club of Charlottesville is selling Christmas trees and hand-made wreaths to earn money to support club service projects mainly benefiting children and youth.
Trees and wreaths will be sold at Seminole Square Shopping Center now through December 20, 2010, Mondays through Fridays from 2:00-8:00 PM and Saturdays and Sundays from 11:00 AM-8:00 PM. The Kiwanis tree lot is located in front of Office Depot.
Kiwanis is selling fresh cut fraser firs from nearby West Virginia, locally grown and fresh cut white pines, and large and small wreaths beautifully hand-made and decorated by local Kiwanians, CKI members, and Key Clubbers.
Kiwanis sponsors five Key Clubs in local high schools, a CKI Club at the University of Virginia, a Central Little League team, and holds an annual Holiday Party for Persons with Disabilities at WorkSource Enterprises.
All money raised at Kiwanis events is returned to the community in club service projects mainly benefiting children and youth. Last year, 40 Kiwanians volunteered for more than 1,500 service hours and raised more than $21,000 which was distributed to a variety of local agencies mainly serving children and youth. In addition, approximately 400 high school and college youth are learning and practicing the highest values of service and leadership essential for the improvement of this community.
