DIYode helps with Trees for Tots

DIYode members were on hand Saturday January 12th to help out with the Trees for Tots Christmas tree pickup in Guelph.
We were one of 40 teams tasked with picking up 1500+ trees from across the city. Each team was given a list of pickup addresses and a map. Most teams had a pickup truck or trailer. DIYode went one step further by using our member-use pickup truck and a 6×12 trailer.
Here’s a picture during our first tree drop off. There are 30 trees in there somewhere!

Trees for Tots

At the end of the day DIYode collected 56 trees and $614 in donations!
While the suggested donation for each tree picked up was $5; the average was over $10 per tree.
There were some people who donated significantly more!
Thanks to everyone for their donations and to the Childrens Foundation of Guelph & Wellington for organizing this event.
