Council made a decision to cancel the annual pick up of Christmas Trees. It was not a big budget item – $22,000. However, we only picked up a little over 6,000 trees last year so why should the other approximately 40,000 homes pay for this service and the choice of 6000 homes to have a live Christmas Tree and have it picked up by the City.
A simple budget decision has released the amazing creativity of our community. The Children’s Foundation of Guelph and Wellington has partnered with Terry’s Tree Service to offer a pick up service as a fundraiser – Trees for Tots!
They are working out the details so follow them on twitter #TreesForTotsGuelph or check out their website http://www.childrensfoundation.org/ for details as they develop.
Another way to give back during the holiday season.
