Sponsors to decorate Kuu-us trees

More than a dozen organizations are preparing to decorate Christmas trees in the Kuu-us Crisis Line Society’s annual Festival of Trees.

More than a dozen community organizations and individuals are preparing to decorate Christmas trees to give away to families in the Kuu-us Crisis Line Society’s 15th annual Festival of Trees, and still it’s not enough to help everyone this year, Kuu-us’ executive director Elia Nicholson-Nave said.

Recipient families were nominated by various community organizations. Seventeen sponsors will decorate and donate trees this year.

“Unfortunately, we had to turn people away this year. That goes to show there’s more demand,” Nicholson-Nave said.

Decorations will be boxed up and delivered with the trees, food hampers and gifts to families on Dec. 15.

“The kids, the families are so appreciative.”

Sponsors will decorate trees this weekend; trees will be on display at Animal Ark and Merit Furniture on Third Avenue and the Kuu-us office on Johnston Road at Adelaide Street. The public can vote for their favourite trees at the Kuu-us office, Monday to Friday, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
