Downingtown Good Neighbor Christmas Inc. is starting a “Fundraising Campaign” to purchase a 17’ Giant Everest Artificial Tree with a 3’ star on top that will be placed next to the Log House during the Christmas holidays.
For several years, Downingtown went without a Christmas tree. For the 2016 holiday, our committee decided to bring back the tree and celebrate with a tree lighting ceremony. But first we had to find a tree – not an easy task. Large evergreen trees that are good looking on all sides are few and far between. After looking through several tree farms, we finally found one for last year. It was expensive! So after giving it some thought and research, we’ve decided that an artificial tree was the way to go. It’s the right height, nice and full on all sides and can be used for many years to come.
Our committee is working to expand the Christmas celebration in the Borough beyond the wonderful Christmas Parade that takes place on the second Saturday in December. Last year’s tree lighting ceremony was a start. It was very well attended and enjoyed by all. Your donations toward the purchase of this new tree will help get things moving in the right direction. Our goal is $10,000 which will pay for the lighted tree and the star.
Businesses, organizations and individuals can contribute to the “Tree Fund” at the following levels listed below. We are a 501(c)3 organization, so your donation is tax deductible!! All sponsors will be listed on the Downingtown Good Neighbor Christmas Inc. website, the Daily Local Christmas supplement and on a sign displayed at the tree lighting.

NORTH POLE SPONSOR – There is only one sponsorship at this level. It includes having your name listed in all the places above and having your business logo incorporated into the sponsor sign at the tree lighting and a Star on the tree with your name on it. The North Pole sponsor will ride with Santa by firetruck to the tree lighting and pull the switch to light the tree. This sponsorship spot has been filled by Downingtown Collision
