Firefighters hosting Christmas tree chipping fundraiser

Kelowna's firefighters are chipping Christmas trees for charity again this year.

The service is being provided this weekend on Saturday and Sunday, between 10 and 4 each day.

Two stations will be participating - Station 1 on Enterprise at Dilworth, and Station 4 on Dehart Road at Lakeshore.

Proceeds from the tree chipping go to the BC Professional Firefighters Burn Fund, which provides resources to burn victims during and after their time recovering from injuries.

Officials are also asking people to double check that all decorations and tinsel are off the tree before bringing them in to chip.
