Members of Red Deer Firefighters Children’s Charity will once again provide a voluntary Christmas tree pickup service to Red Deer homes. Residents can place Christmas trees on their front lawn for pickup from January 8 to January 22, 2016.
“Christmas tree pickup is not a City funded service, so we really rely on the generosity of Red Deerians’ donations to keep this annual campaign alive as the increase in artificial trees our donations have rapidly declined over the last ten years,” said Dan Henschel, Red Deer Firefighters Children’s Charity.
Donations to the Red Deer Firefighters Children’s Charity can be made directly to the firefighter picking up your tree, or mailed in the pre-addressed envelope left in your mailbox. Receipts are issued for donations upon request. Donations to the Red Deer Firefighters Children’s Charity are used to support local children’s charities.
“On behalf of the Red Deer Firefighters and Local 1190, we thank all residents who partake in this charity event and for their continued support,” said Henschel.
