Good news for those in need of Christmas trees and greenery this year: The Kenwood Education Foundation (KEF) is again hosting its Annual Holiday Tree Sale to benefit Kenwood Elementary School.

The KEF is continuing to partner with a tree farm in Oregon to provide fresh-cut trees, including Douglas and noble firs, as well as handcrafted wreaths and garlands. The sale also includes an option to donate a tree to active members of the military.

All orders must be placed online by Nov. 14, and trees, wreaths, and garlands will be available for pick-up on Saturday, Dec. 3, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. at Kenwood Elementary School, 230 Randolph Ave. in Kenwood. Delivery is available for local residents within 10 miles of the school for a $25 donation.

To order, visit Kenwood-Trees/. All money raised supports critical programs at Kenwood Elementary School, such as STEM (science, technology, engineering, math), physical education, and arts instruction.

“We see families from Kenwood, as well as Santa Rosa, Oakmont, and Sonoma, making the trip to our little school to pick up their holiday trees,” says Chad Wyatt, president of KEF. “This fundraiser is one of my favorite events because it brings together our extended community, while raising greatly needed funds. The pickup day is great: The trees smell amazing, everyone is in a great mood, and you get to see most of Kenwood on one big chilly day. I love it.”
