Tree Lot Is Coming – Volunteers Required

Hard to believe, but holiday preparations are in full swing.  Continuing a long-standing tradition, the WHEU Christmas Tree Lot will open the Monday after Thanksgiving, December 1.  We staff the lot 7 days/week until all the trees are sold.  The trees are freshly cut in Oregon, and have a reputation for being the highest quality in the local area.

We need your help in two ways.  First, let your friends, neighbors and family know about our tree lot conveniently located in the WHS student parking lot at the corner of Victor St. and Del Amo Blvd.  More customers means we sell our trees more quickly!

We also need one adult from every WHEU family to sign up for a 3 hour shift to assist with tree sales.  We staff 4 adults per shift with one adult that can use power tools.  WHEU students also volunteer at this event, but may not use power tools or handle money. Volunteer shifts are:

Monday  Friday 3:00pm-6:00pm and 6:00pm-9:00pm
Saturday and Sunday 9:00am-noon; noon- 3:00pm; 3:00pm–6:00pm and 6:00pm–9:00pm

In addition to these shifts, we need volunteers with power tools on Sunday, November 30th, 3-5pm, to assemble the tree stands.  We also need a few volunteers on Monday, December 1st to oversee the students as they off-load of the trees. Both of these shifts are listed in Volunteer Spot. Please sign up for a shift today, by following the instructions below.
