A limited number of artificial Christmas trees will be available for community members to borrow throughout the holiday season, aligning with our mission to reduce waste and promote a culture of borrowing instead of buying. While the trees on hand have already been reserved, we will be purchasing more to share with the community next year. Please fill out our interest form to be notified when trees are available.
