This year’s goal for “Help Light the Tree” is $15,000. We kicked off the annual fundraising event after hosting the Peculiar Area Chamber of Commerce’s Third Friday Coffee on November 18th. The Christmas tree is now placed in Peculiar’s Price Chopper with decorations made by local Girl Scout Troops. This tree and the one in downtown Peculiar will be lit from the bottom upwards as donations are received.
Help us light the tree and brighten our community. Shoppers can select an ornament from the tree at the Peculiar Price Chopper and then donate any amount when checking out at the register. Alternatively, you can donate online. As of November 26th, over $6,000 has been donated to “Help Light the Tree.” Caring Hearts of Peculiar is off to a great start!
Caring Hearts of Peculiar has donated $40,320 in 2022 to organizations that benefit the residents of Peculiar. Pictures of those donations are shown below.
