‘Tis the season to give back!
For more than 38 years, Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade has been selling Christmas trees and wreaths to help bring holiday cheer into South Florida homes. This year the tradition continues at the Hank Kline Club tree lot, 2805 SW 32 Ave. in Miami.
The trees, gorgeous Fraser firs, hand-selected in North Carolina by Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade’s president Alex Rodriguez-Roig, stand five-feet to 14-feet tall with a starting price of $55. Plain and hand-decorated wreaths also are available starting at $35.
Proceeds will benefit Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade’s many positive activities, including after-school programs, homework assistance, computer training, social skills, dance, arts and crafts, professional mentoring, as well as summer and athletic programs, for area children who need them the most.
To begin the 2019 holiday season, Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade will host a grand opening ribbon-cutting ceremony at the Hank Kline Club tree lot on Monday, Nov. 25, at 5 p.m. Miami dignitaries, Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade board members and representatives as well as Santa Claus will attend to celebrate a holly jolly holiday season.
The tree lot will be open 9 a.m.-9 p.m. seven days a week, starting Nov. 25, until trees are sold out
