Comox Fire rescue hosting tree chipping event as YANA fundraiser

All proceeds go to You Are Not Alone

Comox Fire Rescue will be conducting a Christmas tree recycling fundraiser after the holidays.

Bring your natural Christmas trees and a cash donation to the Comox fire station on Saturday or Sunday, Jan. 5 and 6, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Can’t make it to the station? For a minimum $10 donation, Comox firefighters will pick up your tree at your home. For tree pick-up call 250-339-2432 in Comox.

One hundred per cent of all proceeds will go to Y.A.N.A. (You Are Not Alone).

“This is a great project and a win-win for all involved,” said Comox Fire Chief Gord Schreiner. “The Christmas trees get recycled as compost and the firefighters help out their favorite local charity. Another great example of how our firefighters work hard to make our communities better places to live.”
