Southeast Enterprises and Jimmy’s Trees are Teaming Up  – Sunday, November 22, 2015

On Sunday, November 22, 2015 from 8:00am-2:00pm, Southeast Enterprises is opening its facility located at 6701 Booth Avenue, Kansas City, Mo. 64133, to the public to collect donations for our Holiday Lights Recycling Drive and Jimmy’s Trees. We will be on site to accept donations for the following items:

  • Any Christmas tree lights (new, working, non-working lights)

  • Shatterproof/plastic bulb ornaments

  • Tree toppers

  • Christmas tree bags (the largest expense)

              The Holiday Light Recycling Drive, now entering its fifth year, launched in 2011 with the intent of providing work opportunities for its employees with developmental disabilities and diverting solid waste from local landfills.  The response from the community was overwhelming and Southeast has collected over 124,000 pounds or 64 tons of lights from over 165 different locations, the last four years. 

               Jimmy’s Trees was founded in 2012 by Tim Moses and his family to give Christmas trees and decorations to help those who need a little help to bring in the holiday spirit and put smiles on children’s faces. This was all to honor their brother who passed away at a very young age on Christmas Eve. This year, Jimmy’s Trees will give 200 trees to active duty families who are experiencing financial hardship at Fort Riley.  Seventy-Five trees will go to local Kansas City organizations which help survivors of domestic violence such as Hope House and Rosebrooks.  An additional twenty trees will be given to a food pantry in Lee’s Summit for distribution. All remaining trees will be given to local families whom reached out directly to Jimmy’s Trees for help.

Monetary donations and volunteer sign-ups are always welcome at both organizations.
