Christmas in October!
Area Residents Invited to Get Early Start on Sharing the Holiday Spirit




WHAT:         For many Americans, it’s hard to imagine celebrating Christmas without a tree to decorate.  Yet today many families struggle to make ends meet and in turn have to forego some holiday traditions like purchasing a Christmas tree.  The Salvation Army is teaming up with Treetime, a national premium artificial tree and décor company headquartered in Chicago’s northwest suburb, to help Milwaukee and Chicago area families in need with its Tree Trade-In program.

WHEN:          October 1 – 31, 2012

WHERE:          Area residents can donate their gently used artificial Christmas tree by contacting The Salvation Army to schedule a pick-up of their donated tree by contacting: The Salvation Army at:
1800-SA-TRUCK  www.satruck.org

Or donate your gently used artificial tree at:
Treetime Christmas Creations showroom
22N102 Pepper Road
Lake Barrington, IL                

www.treetime.com

                        
Residents who donate an artificial tree will receive up to 15 percent off a new Treetime artificial Christmas tree purchase (to be redeemed by October 31). 

WHY:        Treetime Christmas Creations business owners Joe and Laurie Kane know firsthand how festive decorations, especially a Christmas tree, can lift one’s spirits during the holiday season.  The Salvation Army has more than 5,000 Chicago area families and 56,000 in Milwaukee County, that regularly visit their local retail stores in the months leading up to the holiday season.  The two area organizations have teamed up to spread holiday cheer through donations of gently used artificial trees for local families in need. 

WHO:        The Salvation Army is the largest social service organization in the world and the single largest direct provider of social services in Chicago and the state of Illinois.  The Army operates 200 points of entry in neighborhoods across the greater Chicago area and 85 programs in Milwaukee County, providing disaster relief, shelter, meals, rehabilitation programs, child care and head start, senior services and more.
       

Treetime Christmas Creations features more than 200 varieties of Christmas trees, as well as wreaths, garland, storage containers, accessories and other holiday décor.  Treetime artificial Christmas trees are designed exclusively by seasoned designers that understand the importance of style, beauty, reliability and quality craftsmanship.  Owned and operated by Lake Zurich residents Joe and Laurie Kane, Treetime products are available via online or telephone ordering, and its 50,000 square foot showroom in Lake Barrington, IL.
