The 29th Festival of Trees is in need of volunteers.
The annual event, hosted by the Red Deer Regional Health Foundation, will open Nov. 25. Organizers say volunteers are still needed from Nov. 19 to 27.
Hundreds of volunteers are recruited to help during the festival and the days of setup before the event.
Volunteers can sign up online at www.reddeerfestivaloftrees.ca/volunteer, or they can call or text the volunteer hotline at 587-876-8699.
Each year, proceeds from Festival of Trees support a specific project at Red Deer Hospital. This year’s event supports the purchase of equipment for the intensive care and coronary care units at the hospital.
