Christmas is over, but a Kansas City ministry is already collecting artificial Christmas trees—for next year. The organization is called “Jimmy’s Trees”. Artificial trees and decorations are collected and then donated to families that can’t afford a tree.
Tim Moses started the ministry several years ago in honor of his older brother, Jimmy, who passed away at the age of 9—but loved Christmas. Moses says he wants to make sure every family’s Christmas is as magical as possible.
This last year, they had requests for 127 trees, but they only received about 62. This year, they’re hoping to provide a tree to each family that wants one. They’ll even arrange home pick up through out the year.
They will take your old, artificial tree–or a donation.
