I know it’s hard to believe, but Christmas 2010 is now less than a month away. For those of you who are planning to do some traditional holiday decorating with a recently-live tree (no judgements please), here’s the options that we saw on our weekend trips around the neighborhood:
1. The Capitol Hill Alano Club has their annual tree-selling fundraiser up and operating in the vacant lot at 22nd & Madison (former home of Deano’s, across from the Safeway):
2. The Umojafest Peace Center is selling trees again this year too, at their headquarters at 24th & Spring:
3. A third tree lot is set up in the Grocery Outlet parking lot at MLK & Union:
Happy tree trimming!
Although tecnically Capitol Hill, don’t forget Dunshee House at 303 17th Avenue East – tree sales benefit AIDS/HIV services
City Peoples’ Garden Store in the Madison Valley has, as it does every year, turned its outdoor plant area into a Christmas Tree lot.
Recall their financial problems this summer:
“The Capitol Hill Alano Club (CHAC) is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization that is dedicated to providing a safe and permanent meeting place for members of the Seattle LGBT community in recovery.”
I think we should really support the places like the Alano Club that are selling trees for fundraising.
The Capitol Hill Seattle Blog also mentioned El Centro’s tree lot:
