The annual tradition of the construction of the Christmas CanTree will officially take place on Monday, November 22 at the Secret Garden in Elk Grove (8450 West Stockton Blvd.). The creation of the CanTree will occur from 7:30 to 9 a.m.

The Christmas CanTree is an annual fundraising drive sponsored by the Sacramento Association of REALTORS (SAR), which culminates in building giant Christmas trees made entirely of canned foods. The trees are symbolic of SAR’s fundraising efforts year-round. Each tree will be made up of more than 18,000 cans.

Money raised by SAR benefit The Salvation Army’s food pantry in Sacramento. Since its start in 1983, The Christmas CanTree project has evolved into a series of year-round fundraising activities. SAR has collected more than $2 million in the last 27 years.

Along with the Elk Grove location, Christmas CanTrees will also be constructed at Country Club Plaza and Sunrise Mall on November 23.
