The Y’s Men/Y Service Clubs have been selling Christmas trees and sending kids to Y camps since 1938. There are two ways to support the Y Christmas Tree Lots: stop by to pick out your tree, or volunteer your time.

Volunteer Duties

  • Help families pick out a tree
  • Cut off the bottom of the trunk and/or remove branches near the bottom
  • Assist with carrying and tying tree to buyer’s car
  • Brush snow off inventory and cut twine to secure tree for car
