Christmas Tree Forest At DeVargas Mall, Saturday Nov. 30, To Benefit Children, Support Small Business Saturday
This year a forest of Christmas trees will spring up at DeVargas Mall in a special effort to brighten the days for local children who are homeless or in foster care. The Santa Fe Fire Department, Opulent and the DeVargas Mall will be setting up a forest of trees, decorated with the children’s wishes, none of which costs more than $50. Visitors can choose a tag, and fulfill the wish of a needy child while shopping at a local business. Twenty participating businesses and organizations will decorate a tree and will be responsible for any tags that are not taken from the tree.
Santa Fe Firefighters are spearheading this effort, because so often our front-line first responders are the ones who see the need and the hurt in children who would otherwise have a cheerless holiday season without any family.
WHY: To share with less fortunate children, many of whom through no fault of their own are spending the holidays without family. And to support our small businesses and create a real sense of community.
HOW: Each business provides a tree decorated with tags; each tag is a gift a child has wished for, under $50
