Union Bank, Anthony’s Christmas Trees Join Forces with Trees for Troops Donation

For the sixth year, Union Bank is participating in the national Trees for Troops program and partnering with Anthony Dal Bello, owner of Anthony’s Christmas Trees & Wreaths, in the Central Coast.

The bank is providing 175 Christmas trees to active military families on the Central Coast and 15 trees to the national Trees for Troops program for shipment to military bases.

In Santa Barbara, 25 local military families will pick up their free Christmas trees at 2 p.m. Sunday at the Anthony's Christmas Trees lot at Earl Warren Showgrounds, 3400 Calle Real.

Known locally as “A Noble Fir for a Noble Cause,” Union Bank’s support has grown to six locations: Santa Barbara, Lompoc, Paso Robles, Port Hueneme, San Luis Obispo and Simi Valley.

— Randy Weiss is Union Bank's community foundation officer for the Central Coast Region.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
