Bring holiday cheer to families shopping for a Christmas tree and holiday greenery. 

Volunteers are the heart and soul of the Shining Light Tree Lot and Boutique. Volunteers are needed to create a joyful and memorable shopping experience for families by helping them select their special Christmas tree and shop for wreaths, roping, and tree accessories. 

Volunteers help customers and other volunteers understand that the proceeds of their purchases support programming for kids with visual impairments and their families.
