Christmas Tree Ornament program
The club will display numbers of ornaments on a small Christmas tree that will be offered for sale. 100% of the sales will be donated to the Second Harvest Food Bank of Northwest NC and the Second Harvest Food Bank – Metrolina. (Based in Charlotte which services the Hickory area).

The two separate food banks are listed because Hickory is in a different region than Winston Salem. As such we have chosen to honor and contribute to both. This decision was made based on a meeting with Second Harvest management to avoid any regional issues. Local advertising is certainly encouraged.
