Festival of Trees to benefit children with special needs
A holiday display featuring 70 decorated Christmas trees is benefiting children with special needs.
The Family Support Network of Eastern North Carolina is hosting their 24th annual Festival of Trees event.
The festival features 70 decorated Christmas trees from community sponsors. All of the money from the sponsors goes toward the non-profit organization, which provides emotional support and resource information to families who have children with special needs or who have experienced the loss of a child.
You can view the festive displays for free from November 28- December 23 from 9 am- 5 pm at the Greenville Convention Center.
Organizers say there are still a few trees available to sponsor. For more information, call Executive Director Kelly Phillips at 252-917-4110.
The organization is also hosting story time with Santa on December 3 and 10 at 6 pm at the Greenville Convention Center. It will include an interactive reading of Twas the Night Before Christmas. Families will receive a photo of their child with Santa and Mrs. Claus, as well as a letter from the North Pole!
That event costs $10 and reservations are required. To do so, call Phillips at the above number.
