AWB preparing for 26th annual Holiday Kids' Tree Project



As we prepare to celebrate Thanksgiving, AWB is also preparing for the 26th annual Holiday Kids' Tree Project, which kicks off the December holiday season just a week later.

Fundraising is already underway for this festive tradition, which brings light and joy to the Capitol while raising money and collecting toys to help needy, deserving families and rural communities in all corners of the state.

The 2014 Holiday Kids' Tree lighting ceremony will take place Friday, Dec. 5, at 6 p.m. in the Capitol rotunda.
