The Belleville Kiwanis Club Christmas Tree Lot is put on by the Belleville chapter of Kiwanis, an international volunteer association. The Belleville chapter funds a scholarship for a student at SWIC, works with school nurses to ensure needy children have shoes, sponsors awards for students at Art on the Square, in addition to many other projects.
How to help
The club sells several types of live Christmas trees, as well as wreaths, roping and grave blankets. The lot opens at noon the day after Thanksgiving.
To buy a tree, visit the Kiwanis tree lot after it opens Nov. 28 at the SkyView Drive-in, 5700 North Belt West in Belleville. Lot hours are 4-7 p.m. Monday-Friday and 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday and Sunday until the group runs out of trees (usually the second week of December).
