Every time Tom Foley sells a Christmas tree, a local school can earn money. His customers just need to (1) tell Tom to donate $10 of the purchase price to the PTA of their favorite school and (2) sign the school's signature sheet, and the PTA will get $10 per tree.

P.S. 154, P.S. 230, Brooklyn Prospect Charter School, and others are participating in the fund raiser. Tom sells the trees in Park Slope on 8th Avenue, between 7th and 8th streets. He is a former stock broker whose children attended Brooklyn's public schools.

Tell your family and friends about this fund raiser so they too can help raise money for public schools. It isn't necessary to have a child in a school in order to make the donation.

Delivery of the tree is free as is setting up the tree, if a tree stand is already in place. 

If you have any questions, send an e-mail  to FoleyChristmasTrees @ gmail . com.


From "Finding the Perfect Christmas Tree: A Bluegreen Timeshares Holiday Exclusive":

Common Christmas tree varietals include the Douglas fir, the Canadian balsam, the Noble fir, and the Fraser fir. Tom Foley, the proprietor of a popular Christmas tree lot in Brooklyn, New York, recommends that shoppers seek out a Fraser fir if possible. He prefers Frasers for a number of reasons, namely because the varietal boasts approximately 30 branches and gives off an especially piney scent.
