Wrap up this holiday season by chipping your Christmas tree. It’s good for the earth and supports a worthy cause

Wrap up this holiday season by chipping your Christmas tree. It’s good for the earth and supports a worthy cause.

On Saturday, Jan. 4 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Campbell River’s professional fire fighters will hold a by-donation tree chipping fundraiser at the Campbell River Sportsplex – rain or shine.

All proceeds will support the BC Professional Fire Fighters Burn Fund. Minimum donation is five dollars.

“This event helps the Campbell River Fire Department prevent fire hazards for homeowners by providing a way to dispose of dry Christmas trees,” says Fire Chief Ian Baikie.
