Family Support Network of Eastern North Carolina hosts “Festival of Trees” in Greenville

Local

The Family Support Network of Eastern North Carolina is bringing holiday cheer for their annual ‘Festival of Trees Fundraiser’.

The Family Support Network takes Christmas to a whole new level.

Over 75 fully decorated Christmas trees will be on display for a month and all for a good cause.

The first festival took place over 20 years ago and now holds the title of largest fundraiser for the organization.

Lined along the hall ways of the Greenville Convention Center, some trees are there for fun, while others remember those who aren’t there for the holidays.

They provide resources and information for families who have a child with a disability or chronic illness.

All of it’s possible through their donors.

“We need families, people to come to donate all of these sponsors have donated their trees here, and they are making a difference in families in eastern North Carolina,” said Benda Boberg, Executive Director for the event.

Last year, the organization raised thousands of dollars and this year they hope to reach $35,000.

The trees will stay up in the convention center until December 21st.

They’re open from Monday through Friday from 8a.m. until 5p.m. all for free.
