Christmas tree sale to benefit  Kenwood Elementary School


Wondering where to get a fresh-cut tree for the holidays?

By Melissa Dowling

Kenwood Education Foundation (KEF) is once again selling fresh trees, garlands, and wreaths for the holidays. One hundred percent of the profits will benefit Kenwood Elementary School.

KEF has partnered with a premium tree farm in Oregon to source fresh-cut trees. The website also has an option to buy a tree for a family in need or for the family of an activeduty member of the military.

To order, visit https://fundraiser4us. com/shop/Kenwood-Trees.

Prices for trees range from $69 for a 5- to 6-foot Douglas fir, to $199 for a 9- to 10-foot noble fir. Handcrafted noble fir wreaths are $46, and western cedar garland is $3.25 per foot (5-foot minimum). All orders must be made no later than Nov. 14.

The premium quality trees will be available for pickup on Saturday, Dec. 4, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Kenwood Elementary, 230 Randolph Ave., in Kenwood. Local delivery by a very capable KEF volunteer is available for an additional $25.

KEF is a nonprofit public benefit corporation. It raises funds to support programs at Kenwood Elementary School for which sufficient government funding does not exist.

These programs include art, music, physical education, STEM, computer lab, library, and classroom instructional aides.
