Tree Auction Helps Needy Families
The 2018 Benefit Tree Project was held Friday, Dec. 14, at Chuck’s Auction Service in Exeter. Santa’s elves were on hand as participants enjoyed a unique auction experience while raising money for the CEO “People Helping People” program and the U.S. Marine Corps “Toys for Tots” Program. The tree purchased during Friday’s event was given to a needy family in the area who would not otherwise have one for the Christmas season. This year’s event raised $11,020 helping families in the local community. From left, are Captain Jeffrey A. Homza, USMC site commander; Corey Lewis, Chuck’s Auction Service; Staff Sgt.
