A local Christmas tree farm has partnered with Brookside Properties and a local Walgreens location to give back to the community during the holiday season.

Santa's Trees, which sets up its Christmas tree lot each year in Franklin near Walgreens on Mallory Lane and Cool Springs Boulevard, announced Dec. 11 it has made a $3,500 donation to Centennial High School in Franklin. The tree lot has been in business for the past 35 years and has also donated to Brentwood High School, Hillsboro High Schools and East Magnet High School in the past, according to a release.

“We love seeing local families each year and being a part of their Christmas traditions, so it’s wonderful to give back to the community with these yearly donations,” Santa’s Trees owner Jim McLeod said in a release.

The donation was presented to CHS Principal Meghan Sanders earlier this month.

“Centennial High School is truly grateful for the generosity of our longstanding community partners, Santa’s Trees, Brookside, and Walgreens, who continually invest in our students and in our school community,” Sanders said. “Through their support, we are able to fund initiatives that enrich our students’ academic opportunities at CHS.”


Santa's Trees operates eight locations across the Greater Nashville region, including in Brentwood, Mt. Juliet and Hendersonville. www.santaschristmastrees.com
