Two ways to give when buying your Christmas tree
This is the weekend to get your Christmas tree, with benefits from two local sellers going to community causes.
Both Pioneer Acres and Limbert Mountain Farm are giving away partial proceeds from Christmas tree sales.
Pioneer Acres owner Jamie Ubell will be bringing several trees to the Super Valu parking lot on Saturday. All of those trees will be priced at $30, with $3 going toward Agassiz Community Services and the Agassiz Food Bank.
Also, anyone who donates an item to the food bank will receive a further $2 off their tree, making the total $28. That sale runs from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
At Limbert Mountain Farm, they are also making the season merry with a donation to the Agassiz Volunteer Fire Department.
"Members give their time to train and respond to a variety of emergencies in our community throughout the year," said Limbert owner Trudie Bouchard.
They'll be giving 50 per cent of all proceeds to the department, and fire department members will be on hand to help you cut your trees.
This is a country tree farm, so dress for muddy grounds. Limbert also grows their trees 'naturally' without much trimming, she added.
The Limbert event runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, at 5493 Limbert Road. Lunch and refreshments will be available in their bistro.
