Fire crews collect trees for charity
Richmond Firefighters were at Garry Point this weekend, collecting Christmas trees as part of a recycling and fundraising effort.
It was the 31st annual Richmond Firefighters Charitable Society drive-thru, with donations going to the Richmond Firefighters Society's charities, including the B.C. Professional Burn Fund and the Richmond Food Bank.
Off-duty firefighters staffed the event, working alongside a crew from Magnolia Tree Service and Landscaping, who provided the tree chipping.
Music was provided courtesy Virgin 95.3, and hot drinks were served.
