Christmas Tree Lot

From the Friday after Thanksgiving to a few days before Christmas, the Our Lady of Grace parking lot is host to the best tree lot in the Twin Cities. The tree lot features award winning, locally grown Christmas trees, sold by the best salesmen around…you!
The tree lot is 100% volunteer staffed and is a great service opportunity to meet some of your fellow parishioners. This is the second largest service project of the year and all proceeds go to supporting OLG school, youth programs and greater community.

Want to be a Tree Lot Captain this year?

Thanks to all who have signed up to be Tree Lot Captains this year.  We still have a lot of openings and need more people to step up.  Please consider being a captain - it's easy and you won't regret It.

The Tree Lot team helps you get set up before your shift.  You just need to send a couple of emails to help recruit a bunch of guys and then show up and help people find the Christmas tree of their dreams.

Want to volunteer for a shift?

Don't want to captain, but want to help out?  We have plenty of slots open.  We always need help Thanksgiving Weekend, so please consider helping during those days.  

Feel free to peruse the days to find a spot that works for you.  This is also a great way to get to know new people.
