Christmas tree recycling raises $16,000 for Easter Seals

B.C. Lions Society’s annual Chip In for the Kids, Christmas tree recycle held throughout Greater Victoria region

More than $16,000 was raised last weekend at the B.C. Lions Society’s annual Chip In for the Kids, Christmas tree recycle.

Hundreds of residents from Greater Victoria to Duncan showed up to have their Christmas trees chipped and recycled. Volunteers from local Lion and Lioness clubs were on hand to help out.

“We are truly grateful for the support and kindness of the community,” said Shannon Bernays, director of special events for the B.C. Lions Society Vancouver Island.

“With this kind of support, we are able to continue providing much needed services for children with disabilities and their families”.

All money raised at Chip In for the Kids goes to support Easter Seals programs and services on Vancouver Island.
