To date, more than $100,000 has been gifted to the school. “Every customer who comes to see us has a smile on their face and is ready to celebrate the season,” said Santa’s Trees Owner Jim McLeod. “We love seeing local families each year and being a part of their tradition, so it’s wonderful to give back to the community with these yearly donations.”
McLeod presented this year’s donation of $7,500 to Brentwood High School Principal Kevin Keidel on December, 12. “We really appreciate the generous donation from Santa’s Trees. Each year the donation is combined with other PTO funds to purchase technology, teaching materials, lab specimens, band instruments, athletic equipment, and other items for the school. We are grateful for the wonderful partnership we have with Santa’s Trees, H.G. Hill Realty, and U.S. Bank.” said Keidel.
Jimmy Granbery, chairman and CEO, H.G. Hill Realty Company, joined Keidel and McLeod at the check presentation. “Having Santa’s Trees at Hill Center Brentwood is not only festive, it exemplifies the true spirit of Christmas,” said Granbery. “We look forward to this long-standing partnership every year.”
The Santa’s Trees Brentwood lot is located in the U.S. Bank parking lot at 289 Franklin Road.
