All About Trees Chipping For Charity in Lee's Summit, January 4 and 5, 2014

December 28, 2013

The wrapping paper has been thrown away, the cookies have all been eaten, and the decorations are coming down. Another holiday season has come to an end. Once again hundreds of families find themselves in possession of a rather large pine tree that does not quite fit in with the theme of New Year’s.

You could pay a fee to have your tree dumped at the landfill or you could get rid of your tree and donate to charity at the same time.

The first weekend of the New Year, January 4 and 5, local tree care business All About Trees will be chipping for charity from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the Hy-Vee parking lot on Ward Rd.

"We dispose of people’s Christmas trees for a donation of nonperishable food items that we then donate to the local food bank," owner of All About Trees, Scott Blankenship, said.

For the last 10 years All About Trees has been helping to clean up after the holidays and restock the shelves of Lee’s Summit Social Services.

The minimum donation amount is one item, but all are encourage to bring as much as they can.
