Those ornaments can be used to decorate the Lowest Greenville tree, taken home to decorate your own tree or given as a gift. The tree lighting will occur at 7 p.m. at the corner of Greenville and Sears, right next to Char Bar.
Proceeds from the event will benefit Alex W. Spence Middle School’s “Peace Pantry.” The pantry is full of canned goods, clothing and other items that students and their families need. Hunger does not discriminate, and through the donations the pantry receives, the initiative is able to provide non-perishable items for students—no questions asked. Items of particular need right now are winter clothing, including jackets and gloves. All attendees are encouraged to bring what they can, or to make a monetary donation for the cause.
In addition to food, drinks and ornaments, Light Up Lowest Greenville will also see an appearance from Santa Claus himself. Everyone’s favorite red suited, white bearded figure will be available for photos from 6 – 8 p.m., so bring the kids and get the perfect photo for your holiday card.
The fun goes down on Saturday, December 1. Let’s make this year the best tree lighting celebration Dallas has ever seen.
