Christmas Tree Sales to Fight Hunger
ENJOY A FRESH TREE & HELP FUND MEALS
Vale United Methodist Church is excited to host our 12th annual Christmas Tree sale to fight hunger, which opens for business at 11am on Saturday November 27th. Tree purchases and donations may also be made online by visiting our Christmas Tree Sale Site.
Hours of Operation:
- Opening Day: Saturday Nov. 27th 11AM to 5 PM
- Sundays: 11 AM to 5 PM
- Monday-Friday: 6 PM to 9 PM
- Saturday December 4th and 11th: 9 AM to 9 PM // Saturday Dec 18: 9 AM to 6 PM
The tree sale is a primary fundraiser for one of Vale Church’s core missions: fighting hunger near and far. We are partnering for the 12th straight year with the global relief organization Rise Against Hunger, which distributes food to hungry children around the world, often in the wake of natural disasters. Proceeds from our tree sale typically enable us to package 75,000 – 80,000 meals, which are shipped overseas to communities in need. Although we are not sure if we will hold our in-person food packaging event this year due to Covid, proceeds will still go towards ingredients for these meals, as they did last year. Sales will also go towards addressing hunger right here in Fairfax County.
The impact of this effort is real and tangible: Each tree purchased (on average) will provide 100 life-saving meals for hungry children and families.
NEW!! – SPONSOR A TREE FOR A FAMILY IN NEED & HELP FUND MEALS
Interested in spreading more Christmas Cheer? Consider sponsoring a tree for a family in our area who otherwise would not be able to afford one. A complete tree setup includes the tree, stand, and lights for $120 or partially fund a tree donations in $20 increments. This is a great opportunity for those who do not require a live tree themselves to still help the mission and doubles the giving impact since proceeds on donated trees also go towards meal ingredients. You donate, we deliver. Sponsorships are needed by December 10th so trees can be delivered to the families well before Christmas.
To purchase a tree online, to sponsor a tree or to donate directly, please visit our Christmas Tree Sale Site.
