L’Arche Portland’s 23nd annual Christmas tree sale started Nov. 29, and East Portlanders can still pick up their tree in the same location as in years' past.

Though the Safeway on Southeast 82nd and Burnside closed earlier this year, the building’s new tenants, Hong Phat, have invited the organization to continue setting up in their parking lot.

“We are so happy that Hong Phat is welcoming us back this year,” said Erin Weisensee, volunteer Christmas tree sale coordinator.

A second lot will again be located in the Hollywood Neighborhood, at the Grocery Outlet parking lot on Northeast 45th and Hancock.

All proceeds from the sale of locally grown, freshly cut Noble and Doug fir trees supports the L’Arche Portland community, where people with and without intellectual disabilities share life in family homes, creating rich and full lives for everyone.

Santa will spread holiday cheer at the Hollywood lot on two Saturdays, Dec. 7 and 14, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

L’Arche Portland is a non-profit organization and a member of L'Arche International, a worldwide movement of lifelong homes for people with and without intellectual disabilities that nurture personal growth and development for all who live there.

The annual benefit tree sale is one of the organization’s primary fundraisers and helps raise funds to support and strengthen life in L’Arche homes. For more information, contact Erin Weisensee at 503-839-4012 or [email protected]
