United Way Tree of Lights back this year

The  United Way Tree of Lights is coming back this holiday season.

Over the past few weeks, the United Way team has been working hard to connect with its partners to ensure that Prince George’s long standing holiday tradition comes back this year to bring a light of hope and joy during this challenging and unprecedented time.

At noon today, a tree that will be approximately 60 feet long and symbolizes hope, joy, and happiness will be hoisted atop the Coast Prince George Hotel by APA in downtown Prince George. This local community tradition will again inspire people to get past the darkness and difficulties brought upon us by the pandemic and instill a ray of hope, joy, and happiness among the residents of Prince George.

“We are so thrilled to be able to bring the Tree of Lights back to Prince George once again this year,” said Trista Spencer, executive director of the United Way of Northern BC. “Our vision for this year’s campaign is ‘in all its ways and connecting the community together to make a truly meaningful impact in this amazing place we call home.’ We look forward to sharing more in the coming weeks.

“We’d also like to thank the incredible people and organizations that make all of this happen from finding the tree to securing it on the roof, hosting the tree and all that comes with it, we truly couldn’t even get to the starting point without these people coming forward: Warmac Ventures, King Pine Contracting, Sterling Crane, and of course, our host, the Coast Hotel Prince George by APA.”
