Durham Region's business community has been challenged for a second year in a row to a Christmas Tree Decoration competition for a great cause! Stroll through the "Trees for Love" and vote for your favourite tree. $100 from each of entry will go directly to the local food bank. Learn more about the initiative below.
Each business will be provided with a lit tree and the task of creating the very best Christmas Tree they can! From here, they will be judged by all the attendees of Holiday in the Hills.
Ultimately this competition has two winners; Voters Choice, and The Local Food Bank.

The Salvation Army Foodbank Bowmanville
Like last year, all money raised by the Tree's for Love project, will be going right back into our community. With the rising cost of living and income inequality in Durham Region, food banks are needed more than ever.
Especially at this time of year we want to help ensure that during this holiday season everyone
has what they need.
What’s a food bank? Why are food banks important?
A food bank is a nonprofit organization that collects safe, nutritious and culturally appropriate food, and redistributes it to individuals and families experiencing food insecurity.
What is food insecurity? It’s many things. It’s parents who skip a meal once a week so their kids can eat, It's also people who have to choose between buying groceries or paying their rent on time. It’s anyone who doesn’t know how they’ll get their next meal—and that number is growing.
