TRIO Upward Bound Christmas Tree
In celebration of the season, TRIO Upward Bound is pleased to offer their annual tree fundraiser with “Joy and Happiness — A Christmas Tradition,” a fully decorated, 7-foot, Duncan fir, pre-lit with multi-colored lights.
Because of generous donations and discounts from JoAnn Fabrics, Michael’s, Hobby Lobby in Hoover and Home Depot in Pelham, the TRIO Upward Bound Programs are able to again offer an opportunity for one lucky ticket holder to take home this fully decorated tree — with all the trimmings. Each $1 donation that you make to the University of Montevallo TRIO Upward Bound Programs Scholarship Foundation will enter your name for a chance to win.
Tickets may be purchased from a TRIO Upward Bound student or by contacting the TRIO Upward Bound Office at 205-665-6268. The drawing for the “Joy and Happiness — a Christmas Tradition” tree will be Dec. 4. The winner will be contacted on Dec. 5 so they can take it home to enjoy for the holidays!
