Christmas Tree Festival to Benefit CAN

The City of Rochelle is excited to announce the 12th Annual Christmas Tree Festival! All proceeds raised from the event will benefit the Rochelle Community Action Network’s Needy Children’s Holiday Shopping Trip.

The Rochelle Community Action Network acts as a bridge between family and community by providing resources in order to assist children and families in becoming successful members of the community. C.A.N. is run by a volunteer board and over the past year has distributed 350 school supply filled backpacks to local children. In addition, C.A.N. will soon be distributing new winter coats to many local children in need. This year, the Community Action Network will host the Annual Christmas shopping trip for local children who may not otherwise receive a gift during the holidays.

To help us support this wonderful local causes all local businesses, organizations and individuals are invited to donate decorated table-top trees, wreaths, swags and gift baskets. Visitors to City Hall bid on items throughout the week. Bidding ends on Friday at 6:30pm during the Christmas Walk festivities.

If you would like to donate items for a Gift Basket, volunteers will assemble a basket for you. All deliveries must be made by Wednesday, November 22nd..
