Delivering Christmas Trees in Support of the Boys & Girls Club of Valencia

December is a great month for Camelot to help others. Why? Because December is the month in which the Boys & Girls Club’s Festival of Trees fundraising event takes place. The club needs our help, and since it is our slow season, we jump in with open arms and available trucks!

The festive event includes a live auction of Christmas trees professionally decorated that come with other gifts that vary from home décor items to tickets to major sporting events.

Someone has to carefully wrap them and their accompanying gifts up, load them onto a truck, drive them to their new home, and gently deliver them to their new living room. That’s where Camelot comes in. Honestly, the bidding process becomes more lucrative and buying a tree a lot more appealing when the buyer doesn’t have to think about transporting it safely, or at all! Since the event generates a significant portion of the club’s annual operating budget, we are excited to be able to make those trees as appealing as possible. So we promise to get them into the home and placed right in the desired spot.

Delivering the trees is somewhat of a complicated process for our dispatching team as they must communicate with 40-50 buyers, finding out where they live and when they can receive their tree, and then schedule it alongside our regular work. The process can actually take up to three weeks to complete all of the deliveries. Many of the trees go to homes and apartments locally. Others are delivered to businesses decorating their lobbies or offices. And yet others are delivered to vacation homes as far away as Big Bear, California.

Since the event’s local inception 11 years ago, Camelot annually looks forward to supporting the Boys and Girls Club’s Festival of Trees, a fun event in support of the worthy cause of investing in our youth.
