While we haven't even seen a glimmer of white on the ground yet, many people are already feeling the holiday spirit creep up. Get ahead of the curve this year and check "get tree" off of your eternally long “Holidays To Do” list today!

When you order now through November 25 online at Dutchman Tree Farms, a local Michigan family farm for over 35 years, a portion of your purchase will be donated to your local American Red Cross when you use the promotional code RCGRMI.

At Dutchman, you can pick from a variety of fresh trees (including the replantable ones in pots) and wreaths, and then, get this — they get shipped right to your front door! No more standing in a Christmas tree lot, shivering, trying to pick from 800 trees that all look the same, and somehow, always ending up with one where all the needles fall off the second you get it home. (We can all relate to Charlie Brown on this one, can’t we?)

Get a jumpstart on your holiday list while channeling the spirit of giving -- order online now through November 25 and use the code RCGRMI.

The Rapidian, a program of the 501(c)3 nonprofit Community Media Center, relies on the community’s support to help cover the cost of training reporters and publishing content.
