Boys and Girls Club tree sale under way

Dec 2nd, 2016 | Category: Community

Garden Spot Nursery is again partnering this year with the Boys and Girls Club to sell Christmas trees. This will be the 14th annual fundraiser sale at the Bellingham nursery.Garden Spot trees

Owner Marcy Plattner wrote the following about the Boys and Girls Club when she first visited the club off Kentucky Street. “I arrived at 4:30 in the afternoon and the place was packed with kids. Oh the noise! There was staff with  kids playing games,  kids creating art projects,  Volunteers were in the kitchen preparing snacks. There was a quiet room where kids were doing their homework and kids curled up in this quiet spot reading. The question I asked myself was Wow! where would these kids be if they didn’t have this club to go to after school? My next question was how can I help? Then I was hooked.

This is our 12th year partnering with the Bellingham Boys and Girls Club in Christmas Tree Sales.  The Garden Spot is proud to have raised over $34,000.00 toward their after school programs at our local on Kentucky Street club.  (http://whatcomclubs.org)

What this shows is that even a small local business can do big things and make a difference, when they have the support of their community. We want to thank all the families that over the years have come into the nursery to purchase their Christmas trees and the staff and volunteers of the Bellingham Boys and Girls Club who have jumped in to help with trees on busy weekend afternoons.”

Garden Spot Nursery is located at 900 Alabama Street in Bellingham and can be reached at (360) 676-5480 or garden-spot.com.
