Get Involved

Who can Participate?

Businesses, individuals, churches, social clubs, neighborhoods...ANYONE can add to the holiday spirit by sponsoring a tree and decorating, in such a way as to represent your business, or simply to demonstrate your own personal flair. 


You may sponsor a tree for $150 before 11/5/2021.  This will give us time to place the order for our trees.

When do the trees need to be decorated? 

We will pick up and erect the trees on 11/29 and the trees will be available to decorate beginning no later than 12/1.  All trees must be completed by Saturday 12/4.  The tree lighting will be that evening.


Where will trees be displayed?

All trees will be displayed at the Water Tower Plaza this year.

How can I support this project if I can’t sponsor a tree?  

  • If your business does not have staff enough to leave work and decorate a tree, we have volunteers who could take the decorations you’d like on your tree and decorate it for you.

  • If you would like to volunteer to help, please email the Chamber to sign up on our website.

  • We are asking Chamber members to consider putting a hand made collection box in their store to collect additional funds for Feed the Need.
