DETROIT (AP) — McDonald’s restaurant owners are donating 1,000 live Christmas trees to Detroit-area families.

Five hundred trees, tree stands and gift cards will be given at a private event Saturday morning to families pre-selected by area churches.

The remaining trees will be available from 1-3 p.m. on a first-come basis at the McDonald’s on Eight Mile Road near Woodward Avenue.

The trees are 5 feet tall to 6 feet tall.

Event organizers say Detroit-area McDonald’s restaurant owners also have donated turkeys, hats and scarfs, school supplies and other items to families in need as part of their support for the community.

    McDonald’s is not so good for your gut, and they are going to donate Christmas trees to the needy ????NEEDS in life oxygen, food, water, shelter…… WANTS.. Christmas tree, over consuming on food and materials and alcohol for Christmas. Not a very good thing to support mc Donald’s and your cutting down a LIVE tree to place in homes that end up just dieing and being trashed! I urge people this year to not buy the trees who are we to cut down trees so we can look at them inside for our selfish enjoyment ? Also look into the history of Christmas it’s not the prettiest one, aka saturnalia. I believe in Maryland when people first started celebrating Christmas they were locked up.
