We’re honored to be their partner.”
“With the help of our partners, we’re able to give Christmas trees and stands to deserving veterans and their families to enjoy the traditions of the holiday season,” said Irwin Loiterstein, treasurer of The Kaufman Fund and chairman of the Trees for Vets Committee. “We greatly appreciate Enterprise Bank & Trust, Bommarito Automotive Group, the Northwest Chamber of Commerce, the West St. Louis County Chamber of Commerce, St. Patrick’s Center, UMSL, USO, Sts. Joachim and Ann and other sponsors and volunteers who made this event possible.”
Volunteers will support by coordinating tree deliveries and pick-ups, as well as by providing food and beverages to event attendees. “For the past five years, Enterprise Bank & Trust employees have served over 5,000 volunteer hours annually.
