Volunteers sought for Festival of Trees

DANVILLE — Presence United Samaritans Medical Center's Foundation and the Festival of Trees Steering Committee are seeking volunteers for the 2013 Festival of Trees.

The event will be held Nov. 16-21 at the David S. Palmer Arena, 100 W. Main St., Danville.

Each year, the event raises money for the medical center foundation's outreach programs including I Sing the Body Electric, the HALO Project, Faith In Action, and Young Women/Men Aware.

"We couldn't begin to create this magical event without the time and talents of our community volunteers," event coordinator Angie Lazzell said. "Last year alone, volunteers devoted over 10,000 hours of planning, building, decorating and working at the Festival of Trees."

Volunteers are needed the week prior to the festival to assist with set-up, during the event and two days after to tear everything down.

For more information or to sign up, contact volunteer Chairwoman Mary McMillan 597-5801 or mcmillanm@danville.k12.il.us.
