Project Tannenbaum

This goal of this project is to collect artificial trees and holiday ornaments to be given out to families during the holiday season.  In addition they will be seeking donations of live trees from local service organizations and businesses.  

A family can only receive one artificial tree from Tannenbaum.  If a family received an artificial tree in prior years, they cannot get another tree in future years.  They can get ornaments, etc..  Families that received a coupon for a live tree can get a coupon for a live tree every year, in addition to ornaments.
