Tree and poinsettia fundraiser

With the holidays coming up, there is a great way to make a donation and get something in return to brighten your house in time for Christmas.

The La Maestra Foundation is hosting a Christmas tree and poinsettia sale to raise money to support its health centers and community development programs in City Heights and elsewhere.

Noble fir trees that stand four to eight feet tall require a donation of $25 to $40. Potted poinsettia plants in a variety of colors and sizes — locally grown, from the well-known Paul Ecke Ranch — require a donation of $8 to $25. Donations are tax-deductible.

Plants and trees will be available from Nov. 28 through Dec. 23, or until they are sold out. Pre-orders to ensure availability will be accepted through Nov. 23. For pre-orders, call (619) 584‐1612 ext. 3021 or email Ask about delivery and post-holiday hauling services.
