This Rome Organization is Helping Those Who Can’t Afford a Christmas Tree
The holidays are supposed to be a magical, wonderful time, but if you (or your family) are down on your luck and the bills are piling up, this time of the year can be extra stressful. Between all the money spent on holiday gifts, decorations, donations to others in need, and everything else, you may find yourself a little short when it comes to getting that Christmas tree.
The Salvation Army in Rome has you covered. According to a post on their Facebook Page, Don and Marianne Buttenschon of "Buttenschon Christmas Tree Farm" have donated 100 Christmas trees to those in need this holiday season. 100 trees to help make 100 families have a merrier Christmas.
So if you're in need of a Christmas tree, you can stop by the Salvation Army in Rome, located at 410 West Dominick Street and pick up a tree. Another post on the Salvation Army of Rome's Facebook Page states the trees are behind the building and you can "help yourself." They do ask that you only take one tree per family, which shouldn't be a problem. If someone is willing to help you out and make your holidays brighter, there's no need to get greedy, right?
A big "THANK YOU" to the "Buttenschon Christmas Tree Farm" and to the Salvation Army in Rome, for doing this. The holidays can be hard when you're strapped for cash. And to be willing to give away Christmas trees to those you can't afford one... Well, that's the kindness we love to hear about during the holiday season.
If you're not in need of a tree, but you know someone who may be, pass this message along. You never know, it could be just the thing they need to make it feel like the holidays in their home, especially if they're going through a rough patch.
