Church shares Christmas spirit with free trees

The La Jolla Community Church at 4377 Eastgate Mall in UTC, gave away 450 fresh noble fir Christmas trees on Dec. 4 to nearby residents who simply had to show up with a postcard from the church to redeem it for a free tree.

The Wisbach Family with their tree roped to the top of their van.


The trees, from Oregon, were the churches “gift of hope” to its neighbors.
