Bring out the holiday spirit in your home, business, or office and support your community!
The Shippensburg Community Resource Coalition (SCRC) and the Shippensburg Shade Tree Commission are continuing a holiday tradition for community members, businesses, and families with their annual Holiday Sale. The sale includes 4-6 ft Christmas trees ($40), Fraizer fir and mixed pine wreaths with or without bows ($20-30), and 25-foot garland ($25).
Christmas tree and garland proceeds will benefit the Shippensburg Shade Tree Commission’s replacement plan for additional shade trees in the borough of Shippensburg and downtown district. The Shippensburg Tree Commission is responsible for regulating the planting, removal, and pruning of shade trees that are located in public streets and property within the Borough of Shippensburg.
The proceeds from the wreath sales benefit the SCRC. Charles Bowman ’20, recent Ship graduate in social work and current master of social work student, interns at the SCRC. He explains, “The Shippensburg Community Resource Coalition provides youth food security programs including the Summer Learning Program and Hound Packs.”
Ship B.S.W. and M.S.W. alumna and SCRC community health mobilizer, Sonja Payne ’05-’19M, continues, “The Summer Learning Program provides free meals and activities to Shippensburg children during the summer months. The Hound Packs Program provides Shippensburg students who are food insecure seven meals and snacks for weekends away from school. Last year the Hound Packs Program provided over 20,000-weekend meals to students.”
