Fresh trees, delivered continually, will include Douglas and Noble fir trees ranging in height from 5' to 8' tall. In addition to selling trees, each year, the Simi Y identifies 15 to 20 local needy families. It then donates and delivers Christmas trees to each of them.
The Simi YMCA first began selling Christmas trees in 1965. It typically sells between 400 and 500 trees each year. The lot is run by volunteers from the Simi YMCA's Y's Men's Club, a service organization whose primary mission is to support the YMCA, and by teens who participate in YMCA youth programs. Proceeds from tree sales help support Simi Valley Family YMCA's adult, family, youth and child programs.
On Saturday, December 8 from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m., children can have their pictures taken with Santa at the lot.
