Again this year, the JCBA is inviting local businesses to decorate their Christmas tree with a favorite charity in mind. The money collected by each participating business will go directly to the charity of choice. We ask that you have your tree ready by December 3rd, 2012. Businesses may begin collecting donations on that day with the contest ending January 4, 2013. You can get donations from employees, customers, etc. To register your tree, contact the JCBA office at 618-639-5222 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. The business that collects the most donations for their charity will receive the “traveling plaque” and special recognition by the JCBA.
