SIMI VALLEY, Calif. - Nov. 30, 2014 - PRLog -- The Simi Valley Family YMCA is selling Christmas trees beginning December 4. The tree lot is run by the Simi Valley Y's Men's Club, a YMCA service organization. Members from the group volunteer at the lot along with members of the Simi Y Indian Guides.

         Tree sale proceeds go to community nonprofits as well as to YMCA programs so families who are struggling financially can participate. The money also helps sponsor special events. Last year’s proceeds helped the club fund “Splash Week” at the Simi Y, where kids were able to take swim lessons at no cost.

         The Simi Y has been selling Christmas trees since the 1970s. “We’re all volunteers. No one is paid. That means everything earned from the sale of the trees goes back to the community,” says David Blomeyer, a Y’s Men’s Club member. “It’s a great way to be involved in the holidays. Everyone has fun.”

         The trees, mostly Noble and Douglas fir, are grown at an Oregon farm and shipped to Simi Valley. As in years past, Simi YMCA staff will identify families who may not be able to afford a Christmas tree and give them vouchers for a free tree from the lot.

         Christmas tree lot hours are 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Monday through Friday and 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. The tree lot is located at the Simi YMCA (3200 Cochran St., corner of Galena Ave. and Cochran St., in Simi Valley). Five-dollar-off coupons are available at the Y’s front desk. For more information, call 805-583-5338.
