Get them while they last, the Valley Stream Fire Department Engine Company No. 2 is holding a Christmas tree fundraiser sale this holiday season, with the proceeds to benefit the company members’ centennial anniversary celebration of their Brooklyn Avenue firehouse.
Fire Chief Jason Croak, who coincidentally is also member of Company No. 2, said he would like to raise, “as much as we can,” from the sale, noting that his members are selling “top-of-the-line Christmas trees.”
The trees range in size from three to eight feet, with prices running from $35 to $70 per tree. Additionally, visitors can purchase a wreath as well as a tree stand for $20 each.
“I think it’s quaint,” said Mayor Ed Fare of the effort. “I think most people would rather buy a tree from their Fire Department.”
Croak said members will provide deliveries for the trees if requested.
“If everyone could come down and support the Fire Department, it would be greatly appreciated,” he said.
